Community Life StatuesPrint Page
The Caulfield City Council commissioned Canizzo to produce a series of statues on community life in Caulfield. Seven statues were made, Paper Boy, Mother and Child resting after shopping, 3 twenty foot climbing poles with small boys clinging at the top, and a small bronze boy watching the climbers from below. Statues were made from foundry molten metal poured into moulds. The wax system of casting, a craft abandoned by contemporary artists was used.
