A giant snake can be spotted in Inverloch but it’s not the venomous kind, it’s a new sculpture. The sculpture is part of the new open space that’s been delivered in partnership between Bass Coast Shire Council and Inverloch Estates Pty Ltd, with help from students at Inverloch-Kongwak Primary School.
If you’re walking or riding along the pathway that runs from Goroke St to Tea Tree Court, you’ll arrive upon the enormous concrete snake. This beautiful sculpture, yet to be named, is a meeting point for the community to play, meet, relax or socialise.
Students from Inverloch-Kongwak Primary School were on site last Tuesday to help finish the sculpture. Under the direction of their art teacher, Sarah Reark, all students from the School created clay tiles to be inserted along the spine of the snake, a huge 5,110 tiles in total! Students studied aboriginal themes and local snake species to come up with their own artistic contribution to the park.
Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, was on hand to help with the installation.
“It’s great to see this collaboration between Council, a developer and a local Primary School to achieve such a great outcome,” Cr Tessari said.
