outdoor oversized sculptures

8.Sculptures will add interest to an outdoor space when the right colour and texture is chosen. A stone statue like the Siwa from ROCK & STONE, or the corten-steel Eggular sculpture from LUMP, will contrast beautifully with the leafy green surrounds, and the enormity of the structure will certainly not go unnoticed either. rockandstone.com.au, lump.com.au
