Those of you who drive across the Monaro High Plains will be familiar with the above sculpture, rising from its pedestal of thistles and native grasses, in a sheep paddock vaguely equi-distant from Bredbo and Cooma… 

Minnie and the Gang were charmed to see the local inhabitants getting off on the cultural high…(click on the thumbnails for a closer look.)

[Though long aware that the work belonged to the NGA, we’ve not really been clued into all the pertinent details – but we’ve since done our homework, and for those who’ve been asking the sculpture in question is Charles Ginnever’s Green mountain blue II, 1978. It was commissioned from the artist by John Kahlbetzer, from Umerella Station, who subsequently gifted it to the National Gallery of Australia. For more info go here. Cheers, n(Ed)]
