Special donation of sculptures for Bundaberg Hospital
A SPECIAL donation of wall sculptures by an acclaimed artist will bring joy to patients at Bundaberg Hospital for generations to come.
Arthur "Nobby" Clark contacted the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation to donate a series of textile sculptured art.
Mr Clark, who started sculpting when he was 60 and is known internationally for his work, has finally laid down his tools after 30 years.
"I wanted to ensure my pieces I had went to somewhere where they would be truly valued and enjoyed by people and the hospital is perfect given it will hopefully make patients smile,'' he said.
The children's ward received 10 various hangings depicting Australian birds and animals while a collection of bird pieces have been placed in the Palliative Acute Rehabilitation and Stroke unit (PARAS).
At nearly 92 years of age, Mr Clark has created many beautiful pieces over time, including Denizens of the Deep, which is stored at the Bundaberg Regional Council's Hughes Rd building.
"I really hope that I get to see it in an area where people can see it more and enjoy it rather than being in a council office that hardly anyone needs to visit,'' he said.
