Angels and Demons

These rather lovely sculptures are promoting the Melbourne Festival, which I think has or is about to end. The are several along St Kilda Road/Swanston Street and they certainly create interest. The one outside Melbourne Town Hall has a dire warning sign about interfering with them and that they are under video surveillance. Yeah right, it didn't stop one wag placing a potted flower from a council flower display on the sculptures upturned tail. The once I photographed are in the forecourt of the State Theatre near where the Spiegeltent is erected.


  1. Mischievous looking chaps aren't they :-).

  2. They are indeed Windsmoke, and popular with the people passing.

    They're kinda cute! V.

  4. Trippy looking little things. They certainly make you stop and think--for a minute anyway.

  5. V, as public art, they work.

    Rubye, they do indeed make people stop, as public art should.


Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
