TOWER | Wilbertroy Lane, Jemalong
‘Tower’ by Walcha-based sculptor Stephen King was officially unveiled today along Wilbertroy Lane, 33 kilometres from Forbes along the Lachlan Valley Way towards Condobolin.
King is renowned for his distinctive timber structures and carvings, recently awarded the Helen Lempriere Scholarship at this year's Sculpture by the Sea and first prize at the 2020 Wollombi Valley Sculpture Festival.
“The tower represents our need control our resources. The water tower has almost been made redundant,” Mr King said.
“Advances in technology continue to change the way we store and use water. The old water towers stand as sculptural relic and reminders of what we leave behind in our attempts to meet the challenges of life on earth.”
