You may think it odd to post photographs of a sculpture on a nature blog …. but this giant sculpture on the Cairns Esplanade in Queensland relates to two subjects which are strictly natural history, and on which I have written in earlier posts in Jessica’s Nature Blog. Dominic Johns, the artist, has chosen to depict the locally abundant mollusc known as the Mud Creeper or Mangrove Mud Whelk Telescopium telescopium and has encrusted his creation with a wonderful mosaic of small tiles made from the reknowned Chillagoe marble together with small pieces of iridescent and phosphorescent glass.
