Bondi Beach to Tamarama
Now in its 18th year, the Sculptures By The Sea installation has been successful in drawing large crowds over the years. The 2km coastal stretch between Bondi beach and Tamarama is, once again, packed with hundreds of sculptures to add to the already scenic surroundings. Having started on Thursday, you have until November 9th to check out the sculptures that have been created by both local and international artists.
This year, Alexandria’s favourite cafe will also join in the fun with a beach shack style pop up, The Grounds By The Bay, serving their trademark coffee, fresh juices, and breakfast lunch and dinner.
Good one! :)

When I visited Singapore I knew it was above my overall budget for my trip, especially compared to the rest of Southeast Asia, but I just had to see it. When he was a sailor, Joseph Conrad used to pick up his mail at the Fullerton Hotel. Somerset Maugham and Ernest Hemingway used to frequent the Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel, which also invented the Singapore Sling. As a bibliophile, that was enough to peak my interest to travel here. Sadly, I couldn’t even afford a glass of water in the Raffles Hotel, let alone a Singapore Sling, but I did take a wander through the building.

Attached a picture of the ‘Spaghetti Eaters’, an ceramic (artist unknown) from the private collection of Erwin Esterhuyse (owner of the globally -in antique circles- known ‘The New Junk Shop’) in Stanford, South Africa.
Interesting work! :)
As a first entry I have to introduce, Ivan Meštrović, a sculptor I was drawn to simply because he made the statue of Nikola Tesla (a man born a century too early in my opinion, who was a genius. But that’s fodder for another entry.). It was during our trip to Zagreb and Split in Croatia that we discovered this master sculptor, called “the greatest sculptor since the Renaissance”.
The image above is one of the first sculptings you’re greeted with at the entry of his museum in Zagreb, which happens to have been his home. You’re welcome to touch and in my case, caress, every single one of his creations! That was an experience in itself.
He’s probably best known for the sculptings The Bowman and The Spearman located at the Congress National Gardens in Chicago. The interesting thing about these two works is that the warriors on horseback are missing their weapons!
What I learned taking this photo:
Think about it! You’re allowed to touch and caress the art work, giving you an opportunity to experience the flow the artist felt, perhaps, during its creation. How often does that ever happen?! You can experience it from any angle you want. While doing this I realised that I love sculptings! I also learned that if art is executed with feeling, that feeling is also transmitted to the observer, breaking the barrier of time. For the first time I saw representation of the life of an artist that was a happy family man revealing that, indeed, artists can lead balanced, fulfilling lives. It was the first time I started to really “look” at art, to appreciate it. And, his work was even popular with one of my all time favourite masters, Auguste Rodin, who’s exhibit we’ll be seeing on December 06th at the Palazzo Reale in Milan. Ooooh, can’t wait!
Gorgeous work of art! :)

Love this dress. So abstract and symmetrical. I feel like I am wearing art. I love the mirrored sculpture in the background.
Wonderful shot, really warm and colorful. :)
