Artist Corey Thomas created this awe-inspiring “Spinifex” sculpture from branches and plant material salvaged from local trees, and the gigantic dandelion-like form was recently installed in the middle of a national park in Australia. Once made, it had a fantastic trip to its final destination – it was air-lifted by helicopter to Croajingolong National Park in Victoria.

Corey Thomas tries to create narrative sculptures that reflect the landscape and the materials they are created from. According to his website: “Each landscape – and the materials found within – stimulate new content for my work in terms of stories about people, culture, place and form”. Previously a dancer, Thomas brings a sense of movement and energy to natural environments with his pieces.
