Heritage Fest – St George

image

We attended two short choral concerts at St George’s Cathedral last weekend, as part of the Perth Heritage Days activities. That sculpture outside the cathedral often puzzles passersby. We heard one person say that it reminds them of a barista pouring milk onto coffee. Others have described it as a sheet being blown around the clothes line.

In fact it is titled Ascalon – the name of St George’s lance in medieval stories. The pole, billow and base represent the lance, cape and horse of St George and the dragon that he killed. The sculpture is by Marcus Canning and Christian due Vietri.
