Title: Mandorla

Year (of creation):

Description: A description of the work as provided by the Artist. 'The sculpture “Mandorla” sits in an area where people are mostly passing by: to the Adelaide Casino, the Railway or the Festival Centre. There is a view when one walks up the ramp from North Terrace, also from the passage from the Festival Centre but the main view is from the Hyatt Hotel front entrance. I decided that the work must be human scale and not try to compete with the grand architecture of the Railway/Casino building, or the new Hyatt Hotel. I explored several possibilities and decided there should be two large bronze discs which would overlap and sit on a granite rectangle. The significance of the discs is that it represents infinity and the universe. No beginning and no end. The granite rectangle is a basic symbol of the sub-conscious.'
