MILLION DOLLARS spent on Statue in Perth Instead of our Homeless or Sick People

This is what greeted us as we stepped off the train in Perth on a recent visit to our city in Forrest Place. I was astounded when I saw where the City of Perth is spending hard earned dollars.  I could not believe they could waste this amount of money on a monstrosity like this.

As we stood there flabbergasted, a person walked up to us and said can you believe that that cost us a Million dollars?   We could not believe that our powers to be could use Western Australia's money in such a way.

Don't get me wrong; I have nothing against modern art, but at1 million dollars, surely during these hard economic times the money could have been spent on a much better project.

Money would be spent better on: helping the hundreds of homeless people and creating jobs than a masterpiece that looks like part of the human anatomy.
