Love Flower, by John Meade and Emily Karanikolopoulos has taken pride of place at the Cranbourne Road exit of Peninsula Link, replacing the much-loved Reflective Lullaby (aka Frankie the gnome) by Gregor Kregar.
The monumental and enchanting new sculpture is beautiful by day and stunning by night as it illuminates in sync with street lights, to highlight each intricate detail.
The work is based on an Ikebana flower arrangement with an agapanthus flower. Although it is classified as a weed in Frankston, agapanthus means ‘love flower’ in Greek and was used as a love and fertility charm in ancient cultures.
The sculpture is presented as part of The Southern Way McClelland Commission, a unique partnership between Southern Way and McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery.
