To finish off our Lipson Street stormwater works and streetscape upgrade, the City of PAE commissioned artists Danica Gacesa McLean and Steve Hayter to develop a sculpture that depicts the rich history of the historic precinct. They were assisted by Trevor Wren and Jason Hindes.
The sculpture, titled “Heave & Haul” was inspired by the Block and Tackle – a piece of enduring 2000 year old equipment used by both seamen and wharfies.
When describing the finished piece, Danica (pictured) said, “Heave & Haul celebrates the hard and often dangerous working life of seamen who heaved away on ropes in storms on the high seas to discover new lands or transport cargo, and the wharfies who hauled this cargo from ship to shore.”
We love this huge new sculpture, which sits proudly on the corner of Lipson Street, right outside the
South Australian Maritime Museum
which is one of three fantastic museums on the street alongside the
National Railway Museum, Port Adelaide
South Australian Aviation Museum
