Meeting 1

By ColleenA
I took myself down to Docklands in Melbourne this morning for breakfast. It’s our first day of Winter and the wether obliged.
I Came across this rather strange art installation called “Meeting 1”...it was created by a leading Beijing artist, Wang Shugang
The bronze crouching figures have been cast from one mould which was made from a life size model. All 8 sculptures are painted red. In Chinese the number eight is significant and is believed to bring good luck.
The versions are closer views.
Many thanks for your votes comments and user awards all much appreciated

Excellent image Colleen. The number 8 is significant in China, as is the colour red.
It stands for happiness, good fortune and protection.

Looks like a game or sport. Any minute someone will throw a ball into the middle and they will all pounce!

Interesting images Colleen. Although I see the significance of the colour and the number I do find some modern sculpture difficult to appreciate. I do like the lead image though with the buildings in the background.

A very strange installation for sure. Too modern for my taste, but well photographed by you.

Now, if this was Docklands, London, I'd have to say they are a group of devilish bnakers, getting ready to crap on the UK...

It's a clever concept because they are in a circle and will never all look the same, from whichever angle they are viewed.
