About the work

Title: Sea’s Nest
Artist: Professor Zhang Yangen
Material: Stainless steel, brick
Location: Yarranabbe Park, Darling Point

The inspiration for the sculpture comes from the shape of an egg, which implies that human life goes through the stages of birth, growing up and passing away. The sculpture with its cage-like egg shape, creates a window to the brick egg inside, bringing the viewer the idea of breath of life, as well as alluding to a possible mythological being from the sea.
