Description : Emerging from the pavement like an ancient Greek ruin is the Pythagorean triangle sculpture Architectural Fragment. Inspired by the architecture of the State Library of Victoria and Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem 'Ozymandias' the fragment of column, capital and cornice creates an interesting dialogue between, art, history and change.

Inscription :

My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings. Look on my work you Mighty, and despair.

Date Unveiled: 1993

Funded By : The Architectural Fragment was commissioned by the Swanstn Street Walk Public Art Project (1992) and unveiled the following year.
