I actually caught snaps of some very different examples of sculpture during my trip into Brisbane last week, and although you don't seeobs of these roaming the streets of many of our capital cities (including Brisbane) I was only mildly surprised when I glimpsed them as I was coming back from photographing the Law Courts. But when I drew close enough to see what they really were I was doubly amazed, so much so that when I pointed them out to a little girl ahead of me who had not spotted them (She was looking in the dress shop windows) her reaction mirrored mine completely.
The first picture is a pretty good layout of how real Roos would deport them selves as a small family group in a lightly wooded area. I included the close-up second shot to show the mastery of automotive type equipment to achieve really stunning representations that even in a photo pay more credit to the artist than I could with mere words. Her mother was reluctant for the girl to be photographed with them so she isn't but she thanked me for pointing them out to her, so I asked if they were "Deceptorcon" Roos or "Terminator" Roos at which point her slightly elder brother became interested and said Yeah, "Terminator Roos", smiled and both the kids said, simultaneously "hasta la vista" waved and went of laughing all together, they must think Arnie is "Cool" or "Sick" or whatever the current word is this week.
