Arabesque

This piece was created for the ‘Swell’ sculpture exhibition at Currumbin Beach, Queensland, Australia. This fine Arabian was created in response to coastal erosion which Andy Scott witnessed during terrible storms which hit the Queensland coast in the winter of 2005. Referring to the metaphor of “white horses” as crashing waves, this sculpture was deliberately sited on the sand dunes facing towards the land, with the horse pawing at the coast line.

It stands 3.5m tall and is made of a mosaic of thousands of small sections of galvanised steel round bars which are welded together. The sculpture was bought by Gold Coast City Council and is now sited beside the Pacific Highway at Broadbeach.
