Sculpture Exhibition being displayed in Toorak Village at the moment, until the 16th. The photos, and the price tags, had me intrigued, so I popped out there on the weekend to have a look.
The snail above was not the only animal roaming this section of Toorak Road, with an Echidna, a "Manrabbit" - and the Mermaids In A Can! Humanly clubbed to death before canning, it reads.
Ranging from $150, to a whopping $40,000, you take one of these creations home. Some of them have in fact been sold in previous years, and are on loan for the exhibition (the snail, for example), so be careful which you set your heart on!
You can see some more of the ones that caught my eye here. A little sprinkle of art in a suburban shopping strip!
