Broken Hill Sculptures

The Broken Hill Sculptures seen in the header of this blog symbolise enormous community collaboration and support – locally and globally. To me they represent the creative power and connective networks that exist within the ‘edublogosphere.’ 
See the links below for more.

As much as I love the whole sculpture site, this is the sculpture that I’ve connected with the most.
I believe in bringing something personal into your sharing and blogging experience.

‘Facing the Day and Night’
by Eduardo Nasto Luna – Mexico City, Mexico

“Whilst creating his work in the Outback, Eduardo was especially impressed with nature and her elements, especially the silence and solitude of the site. He badly injured his hand while working on this piece, so it became a collective work with input from Catherine Mould, Badger Bates and Herbert Shiner. The work represents a monumental head that looks toward the dawn sun. Behind, the Dove of the Night symbolizes darkness. To one side, the Wedge Tail Eagle symbolises spirituality, height, strength and freedom. The hands represent those of the sculptors. ”
