' THE CUP OF INSPIRATION '
SCULPTOR - ANTONY SYMONS
This surprise packet appeared in a plastic bag on one of our shelves back in early 2014 and it was such a mystery, not knowing who left it, what it was and after finding engraving on the back, which reads
1995 THE MOLONG YARN MARKET
It became a challenge to find out more - this took a little time and the sculptor Antony Symons gave us this story
The Arts out West had commissioned him to make twenty five pieces for presentation of civic awards at their 20th Anniversary celebrations, held at the Canobolas Hotel Orange in 1995
" The Cup of Inspiration" bronze depicts the sun, clouds, ducks and a tiny frog sitting on a lilypad"
After a good clean, and plenty of polishing, having been given instructions on what to use by Antony, we proudly display our "Cup of Inspiration" for the Yarn Market Assocation to continue to serve the community, traveller and visitor to Molong, completely serviced by volunteers
