Over 100 sculptures were erected on Sydney's Bondi Beach, transforming the 2km coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama into a temporary sculpture park. The occasion was “Sculpture by the Sea”, an annual outdoor sculpture exhibition, now in its 19th year. This year's festival featured 107 sculptures, a majority of which were made by Australian artists, but a large contingent have also come from China, Japan and South Korea. This year’s highlights include a wave of Barbie dolls by Annette Thas, and an upside down bronze statue of a baby by Thai artist Naidee Changmoh. The artworks will be on display until 8 November, and is expected to be visited by 500,000 people. (Also see: Sculpture By The Sea 2014)
