Wentworth Falls Lake Sculpture Walk
Take a walk and discover the carved sandstone sculptures in the park.
• What are seed pods?
• Did you know all of these sculptures represent indigenous seedpods of plants that are growing in the local area?
• Look around the lake. How many sculptures can you find?
• Do you know what material the sculptures are made from?
• What technique has been used to create these sculptures?
• Why do you think seed pods come in so many different shapes and sizes?
• What is the connection between nature and art in this sculpture project?
Questions to consider after engaging with the sculptures
• Which is your favourite sculpture and why?
• Which is the easiest sculpture to sit in/on?
• What are some of the different shaped sculptures you have discovered?
• What is something that all the sculptures have in common? (they are all seed pods of indigenous plants growing in the local area)
• Did you also notice that each of the seedpod sculptures is designed so they can hold water in some way?
• What type of indigenous plants do you recognise or have growing in your backyard/school garden or local area?
