Stand alone sculpture
Artist Tony Jones used a substantial piece of timber with a joint T piece that formed the base for the steel work. It was recycled timber from the new East Perth Claisebrook Cove area. Tony has an interest in most things nautical including navigational instruments. The orb like circles that make up the upper form are reminiscent of an astrolabe and the rose with its points of the compass can be read as such. The steel leg takes its form from a set of map dividers. Most instruments have been redundant by GPS and digital technology. They are often inspirational sculptural forms.
