Sydney’s Public Sculptures: Gods and Goddesses – The Enduring Appeal
We have an enduring fascination with the gods and goddesses of Greece and Rome, and this talk will be a look at public sculptures in Sydney depicting these characters and Greek myths. Sculptures are spread out in the city, Hyde Park and the Botanical Gardens.
Robijn Alexanda is an Art Historian with a special interest in religious art and symbols and she will give us a completely different look at the sculptures in our city.
