Small sculpture sitting in landscaped garden.
Sam Danti, a local market gardener, posed for this life-size bronze, which now stands in the forecourt of the City of Wanneroo’s Civic Centre. Wanneroo Sam still lives in the area and is now 96 years of age (as of 2018). When Sam stood beside the sculpture recently, it was a truly amazing likeness. The artwork was modelled and cast by Ben Jones, sculptor Tony Jones’ son, just after he had completed Eliza in the Swan River, C.Y. O’Connor at North Coogee, the migrant figure at Southern Crossing and the dingo at the E-shed, Port of Fremantle.
