About the book

Melbourne has an impressive number of sculptures on public display throughout the city. Just wander Melbourne's city streets, gardens and laneways and you will undoubtedly find some magnificent public sculptures - from historical and religious icons to playful literary and social figures – all with rich historical weight.

The book Sculptures of Melbourne explores major changes in the nature of public sculpture. When Melbourne was established, sculpture was heavily influenced by the colonial legacy of neo-classical bronze and marble statues.
