haunted attractions near me


Living Desert Sculpture_0397

On a hilltop nine kilometres to the north of Broken Hill lies one of the area’s major attractions, and one of the most photographed landscapes in Western New South Wales: the Living Desert Sculpture Symposium. In 1993 a group of artists from around the world were brought together here to create twelve limestone sculptures. For six weeks they worked together, living in tents on the site and taking their inspiration from the desert landscape and from themes that were personally important to them. The works have achieved wide national recognition and international artistic standing.

This work, by Mexican artist Antonio Nava Tirado, is titled Bajo El Sol Jaguar (Under the Jaguar Sun), It draws its inspiration from the vastness of the landscape and the sky as well as from the haunting and etherial music of Jorge Reyes who, a couple of years earlier, had produced an album with the same title.
