Spanking The Walrus

Another where public rage may hopefully have been sparked by a The Worst of Perth post. Or maybe it’s just bog standard drunkenness. Back in September, we covered this inexplicable walrus statue in Morley, and labelled it as the worst public sculpture in town. How naive we were back then. We had yet to become acquainted with the Maylands Arse Scratcher or the Station Horror. which has been so in the news lately. The walrus retains a certain dignity with the traffic cone on its head.

    Yes Terrible!!
    But wouldnt that shopping trolly be a great place to wake up on a hot new years morning saying ‘oh fuck! How did I get here?

    I agree Kate. If the photo is in any way accurate I think it should be placed on the World Heritage List.

    Either that or it has to qualify for a Shell-FAC Print Award in some way.

    The shopping-trolley is a brilliant touch.

    I think I finally understand it, it is a message about consumerism against a backdrop of accelerating climate change.
    Very Dr Seuss.
