The statue

Happy Australia Day.

One of the most damn impressive things I’ve seen recently is the giant statue of Mazu beside the railway line between South Kensington and Footscray. It towers over everything else nearby.

Statue of Mazu, near Footscray

It’s part of a Buddhist temple being built on the site.

Ah so that’s what that thing is. I’ve seen it a couple of times and have wondered what it was all about. I assumed it was some sort of public art installation or something.
