At the time these were created, they were the world’s largest paper sculptures and unofficially held the record for length by height. They were designed and constructed to withstand rain and wind gusts and stood the test. Included is a representation of two dancing Brolgas (Cranes), a Salt Water Crocodile snapping a large Barramundi fish and Frilled Lizard, all symbolic of the Northern Territory’s unique nature.
Created from custom made 1000gsm cotton rag papers that were 240cm x 120cm from South Australian Blue Lake Paper Mill.
Dimensions: The Crocodile and Lizard were both 6.3 metres long x 3.8 metres high x 1 metre thick. (That’s just 60cm short of the height of a London Bus!) In between, the Brolgas were 3 metres wide at wing tips and 2.4 metres high. Part art, part engineering!
