This was a quirky thing to find in Stanley, but we liked the idea behind it. It is a series of planet sculptures set out along the foreshore path with the distances between them to scale. Really keen people could walk the entire length, but...More

Quirky, but not worth going out of your way to see. Unless you're there for a week and have really exhausted all other options!

This is an interesting 'sculpture' designed to portray the entire solar system. It is located on a lovely walk along the harbour front

It's not a bad piece of sculpture I guess, but I couldn't see any relevance to it's position. I can't see the reason for it being there

Not even sure why they put this here. You will bump into it by accident if you are walking the main road in Stanley doing the sights. Hardly worth a photo.

I visited the main sculpture but was unaware it was a collection that needed to be found, would have loved an excuse to do a bit more exploring around the local area.
