Artist Corey Thomas [1] 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 [2] in Victoria.

Corey Thomas [1] 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.
