The Guardians



The Guardians, by Simon Rigg were unveiled in November at Melbourne's Southgate precinct near the Crown Casino, the commissioning body.


These two monumental abstract sculptures carved from Italian statuary marble and clad with ceramic tiles with 6.7m high. The square based mounting of the large statue depicts the four elements. The smaller Guardian reveals a woman's head looking through the hole of the larger sculpture, and hints at the source of all the images, beyond our plane of vision.

They look like giant bottle openers. Hmm, maybe that says something about me?
