Marvelous Modern Sculptures – 12th Annual Sculpture by the Sea: Sydney, Australia

I-Sea by Tim Kyle, 2007

Sculptures have always been one of my favorite mediums. That's why I'm excited about the 12th Annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibit which will take place next week along the coastline of Sydney's Bondi Beach. The exhibition will feature over 100 large scale sculptures by 40 local and international artists. Over 500,000 visitors will view the sculptures against the beautiful back drop of the sea. Here are some inspiring sculptures from previous years.
