Crab Riders

Frankston City Public Art Frankston

Description

Public Sculpture by Gillie and Marc from NSW

Gillie and Marc's 'Crab Riders' bronze sculpture continues the artists' passionate exploration of environmental issues. Crabs might not be the most popular, pretty or cute creatures in the animal kingdom but Gillie and Marc believe that crabs are more symbolic than ever, in a world facing incredible environmental challenges. Crabs are resilient and strong, thanks to their thick exoskeleton.

Location - North of Frankston Pier (Pier Promenade, Frankston Waterfront)
