March 1 (TravelAndy): A floating stainless steel rock sculpture, over two meters high and four meters long, will float off Perth’s Cottesloe Beach as part of the iconic Sculpture by the Sea event.

Created by this years invited international artist, leading Chinese sculptor Zhang Wang – famous for his stainless steel sculptures – it is set to be one of the key attractions at the event.

The exhibition is featured from the sea wall all the way along the sand towards North Cottesloe and on the surrounding grassed areas creating a beautiful sculpture park. Access to Cottesloe Beach can be made from the ramps or stairs at different locations along Marine Parade.
