The unique sculptures that is made from steel in Perth looks awesome too. I am collecting pictures of sculptures like these because I am more fascinated with steel sculptures rather than wood sculptures. My favorite among these is the Jason Verbeek - Tathered because the artist mixed grass to made it look more magnificent.
