A bronze scuptural representation of Christo and Jeannne-Claude’s Wrapped Coast has been created by Sydney sculptor Eileen Slarke and installed at Little Bay.

Eileen's sculpture; the sculpture is located between the Chapel and the Community Centre, where there is a view of the headland that was wrapped by Christo and Jeanne-Claude

Apparently Eileen has a personal connection with Wrapped Coast, having been one of the volunteers who helped install the work.

When looking at the sculpture, make sure you also look at its “back” side (facing east) – there are three interesting quotes and another small bas relief sculpture of Christo and Jeanne-Claude.

Also, recently noticed in the cliff top at the approximate western end of Wrapped Coast are two large stainless steel eyes set into the sandstone:

Does anyone know if these are a relic of Wrapped Coast – or were they installed more recently by rock climbers?
