    My daughter loves this sculpture but I find it a tad creepy especially at night. Definitely a conservation starter and a great picture

    One of Melbourne's enduring mysteries is "What happened to Larry La Trobe?" Larry disappeared in 1995; why he was stolen, no-one knows. Larry is a dog that looks like a pig, he is said to resemble the scuptor's pet, Some speculate there is a link with Charles Joseph La Trobe, Lt Governor of Victoria. Anyway, Larry Latrobe was replaced, and he is bolted down very deeply.

    The Guardians are in Southbank, near the Crown Entertainment Complex. The Guardians are a pair of sculptures. The top section is a round segment with a large, empty space. The upper sections are made of top quality white Italian marble. The plinth is covered with multi-colored mosaic tiles. The Guardians are tall. Whenever I see The Guardians I speculate "What is the secret of these mysterious Guardians?"
