Forme Del Mito

This is Forme Del Mito (Forms of Myth), an artwork by Italian artist Arnaldo Pomodoro consisting of four bronze sculptures, each symbolizing a character and force within the Ancient Greek play Agamemnon. This pyramid-shaped one represents Agamemnon and Power. And the one in the background that looks a bit like an upside-down ice-cream cone with millions of little legs is really Clytemnestra and Ambition. (Or a gold Dalek).

You'll find them guarding the bottom of Jacob's Ladder on Turbot Street. Pretty imposing!

These are great. I'm sure I've seen some sculptures like this around Sydney somewhere but I can't quite recall where.
Sydney - City and Suburbs

Tongu-in-cheek review! Tut tut ...

But really, what is it with Brizzie and this reaching out the the classics.

Love the bronzey colours ...

Tongue in cheek? Moi?

Actually I really like them. That they can be likened to daleks, ice-creams and other non-ancient Greek stuff makes them even more appealing.
