Sculptures in the Outback

Lake Ballard, north of the Western Australian gold mining town of Kalgoorlie has some (51) most unusual sculptures of people, spread across the vast landscape of a dried lake bed. They were done by English sculptor Antony Gormley using scans of local residents and alloys from the rich mineral deposits in the region. As you walk from one figure to the next, the parking area at the edge of the lake fades into the distance. You certainly have a sense of space and the reassurance that you are not alone.

We are camped in the bush with meagre reception, so I’m only including one picture tonight.
