The Offerings of War


Outside the Art Gallery this is one of the twin bronze sculptures, the other is of course The Offerings of Peace. It was erected in 1926. The inscription reads 'That our house may stand forever and that justice and mercy grow.' It is holding a staff topped by a figure of Winged Victory.
It reminds me of Russell Crowe from the film 'Gladiator', he has an apartment just a few hundred metres from here at the end of The Wharf at Woolloomooloo.

  1. It's a handsome sculpture but I'm glad that it has a more peaceful twin.
