‘Spinning Top’ Sculpture by Jarrad Kennedy

View Product Information

Situated at the junction of Turbot, Wickham and Boundary streets, the Jarrad Kennedy sculpture ‘Spinning Top’ pays homage the unbuilt Holy Name Cathedral which was to be the largest church building of any denomination in the southern hemisphere. Construction on the cathedral started in the 1920’s and unfortunately the Great Depression and a lack of funding for construction stalled the project which was ultimately never completed. The sculpture itself is a scaled version of the proposed cupola for the cathedral, sitting upturned and reflecting the clouds and the sky.

We-ef ETC series inground luminaires with wall wash optics light the sculpture during the evening hours.
