For those of you who have inadvertently missed the last year's sculpture by the Sea exhibition on the banks of the Indian ocean, on Cottesloe beach in Western Australia, there is now a great opportunity to view one of the best works which is now proudly displayed in the open air space between the Gallery of Western Australia and the State Library, in Northbridge.
The famous piece, known as "My Home is Your Home", by Ken Unsworth, depicts two distinctively different houses interconnected by a rope ladder, and erected on the seven meter polls.
This work appears to have a lot of political, religious and humane significance, representing the core of modern Australia – multiculturalism.
One of the houses is said to represent an Islamic habitat with the corresponding architectural trends, coloured white and blue. Whereas the other represents a median Australian dwelling, coloured red and yellow, distinctly reminding the admirers of the Aussie's passion for water sports, hot summer days, pristine Australian beaches and of course, the Life Savers in their bright and sun smart uniforms.
The two world appear to have come together in such a warm and welcoming manner, representing a true and unique Australian spirit and a way of living.
Simple and yet so powerful, this artistic outcry stands proud in the middle of our city reminding everybody of who we really are.
