Meteorite (Fire, Water, Earth)
Public Art : Meteorite (Fire, Water, Earth)
Sculptor : © Malcolm McGregor
Description: The Meteorite sculpture is a large
sphere carved from Mt Magnet granite. The water feature symbolising a meteorite impact, a common phenomenon in
northern Western Australia. When it was originally installed a fine mist of atomised water sprayed the sphere as it
spun and at night fibre optic lights illuminate the water. Unfortunatley the last time I visited it was inactive.
At the base you can see a swirling pattern of stone including images of geckos on black and pink granite.
Date Unveiled: 2000
