Statues in the CBD are dressed up at the moment (for an art project). Here panorama is Queen Victoria (with buskers in the foreground) in George St on the weekend. This statue, ex Dublin, was a gift of the Irish people to the people of Sydney. It has had a checkered past but it works I think as an excellent landmark and looks good except for the vaguely postmodern looking plinth. Plinths are flavour of the month.
