Hey, Are you Coming or Going?

“People come and go, that’s life.” – unknown

There is a little grassy area behind the Victorian Arts Centre where the sculpture of Les Kossartz called Coming and Going can be found. It is a sculpture of six life size bronze sheep and five trap doors with a comedic approach.

Les Kossatz was a widely-acclaimed artist and sculptor who was well know for his sculptured sheep. He was a descendant of the Wendish Kossatz family from Lusatia in Germany and he died from cancer on 15 February 2011.

    What strange minds some folk have! They’re beautifully wrought but I don’t think I like them 🙁

    1. Teresa says:

      I think this is where you can say that Art is subjective.

  4. Alison says:

    They are very strange ..I wonder why he made them like this

    1. Teresa says:

      I don’t know too but he is known for his sheep sculptures.

    When I see sheep in a group kind of lined up I think of sleep. Maybe he meant it metaphorical? But in my head the jury is still out on whether I like this sculpture or not –

      These has been in 2 different sites for 20 years, so somebody may have liked it. But maybe a lot don’t like it too. Thanks for your point of view.
