Between the shores of Lake Burley Griffin and the National Gallery of Australia is a sculpture garden, designed to showcase the extensive collection of sculpture belonging to the Gallery. I have included a few of the sculptures below.
It is a beautiful space, offering a variety of sculptures arranged in different ‘outside rooms’.
The artwork includes Australian and international artists across a range of styles.
The artwork is placed between native plantings selected to survive the extremes in Canberra’s climate.
One of my favourite pieces was Penelope by Emile Bourdelle. Her thoughtful gaze was directed towards the lake.
You can find out more about the Sculpture Garden here.
Have you encountered any stunning sculptures lately?
