Gungahlin Art at Yerrabi Pond
These sculptures at Yerrabi Pond in the form of Pelicans were made by the artist "Neil Dickinson".
Neil told me they are in fact made from polyester resin and fibreglass.
The Village Building Company, who developed an estate on the western shores of Yerrabi Pond commissioned Neil Dickinson to provide some art works. Originally, the Pelicans were located in one of the house yards of the estate, but a new owner didn't want them in their yard, hence they were moved to their present location.
There are also Large Frogs near the Pelicans, and other artwork in Belconnen, like Waterbirds near one of the roundabouts.
Neil also has other artworks, like Wombats in the Hammock Hill Nature reserve near Bowral in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. These Wombats although sculpted by him, are not placed or located to his liking, safety concerns have prompted sighting the wombats in their current location and setting.
Neil, as well as his artistry, runs a landscaping business.
Until Next Time.
