Public Art Around The World

More Than Just The Plaque


Willem de Vlamingh Statue


The Willem de Vlamingh statue along the Swan River has been statue tipped, is being relocated or is having a refurbishment. Despite the soft filtered light of the afternoon sun, poor Vlamingh looked rather undignified, with his nose planted in the turf. In spite of his unfortunate predicament, I am sure Joan Walsh-Smith and Charles Smith are taking good care of the Dutch explorer. I did note that Vlamingh’s trusty swan has been removed, so odds are he is just getting a make-over.
