Is a gigantic mushroom?a hammer? a fish basket?

Today is a exciting day,I visited Sculpture by the sea 2008 exhibation in top 2km Bondi to Tamarama coastal with my classmates.

So many fantastic sculptures absorbed my vision today. I show an opus that I sortted out to everybody.

See the picture,what is look like? a mushroom?a hammer?a fish basket?

The sulpture's name is ROGER RIGORTH

Materials:wood, coconut fibre and aluminium pipe.

When I saw it first time.I feel that is a giganic hammer,one weapon that been used in archaic China. But this hammer is not made by iron, just use the coconut fibre to knit the head,and the handle like a oar. Mybe the sculpture express wish that war and terror will be tied forever, and solve the problem by negotiating .

The auther of the sculpture, Lilywhite is based on the idea of a cocoon, something between a body and a vessel. It is about carrying things which cannot be seen, touched or smelt. Roger is fascinated with the need to move, to explore, to find things and leave old things behind. He is also fascinated with bodies, cocoons, shells and containers. The theme of this sculpture is that it is a kind of creature that has washed up on the shore of the beach. "We are surrounded by many invisible energies, thoughts, spoken words and things. This cocoon or 'creature' is an example, which collects these 'things', these stories from everywhere.'"

Roger is also influenced by tribal societies and their practical, spiritual and mental skills to cooperate with their surroundings and natural environment. He loves wool and all kinds of natural materials, everything which could possibly have a kind of soul."
