In 1993 an artist (Nicholas Globe) was commissioned to create a sculptered wall to celebrate the openeing of Tanks as an art centre.The tanks were used by the Navy to store oil during world war 2.
The artist created a temporary,organic piece of public art that would eventually,over time be enveloped by its natural environment and surroundings.
in keeping with the artist's original vision.
If you are strolling through the Tanks then look for this wall,there are some weird sculptures of heads,people,urns and all kinds of stuff.
Who knows what may be under all those branches and jungle!!!
Address: Tanks art Centre,Collins Avenue,Cairns QLD
