Public Art : Neap Tide sculpture

Sculptor : © Mary Knott

Description : The Neap Tide sculpture consists of two bronzes and a sandstone wall. The life size bronze of a naked figure stands contemplatively out across the park with fish swirling at its feet. While a small primitive bronze boat sits on a bed of pebbles . If, like so many other curious folk, you dare to take a peak into the boat, you might be surprised at finding a large fish.

Date Unveiled : The sculpture was unveiled in 2000 as part of the Subiaco Re-development project.

Location : The Neap Tide can be found in Market Square Park, near the Subiaco Oval, in Subiaco, Western Australia.

What is a neap tide? A Neap Tide is the lowest level of high tide. A neap comes twice a month, in the first and third quarters of the moon.
