Leopard Heads

Located at the end of Spearwood Avenue, City of Cockburn commissioned three leopard heads, forming part of a series of Sister Cities related artworks. They were to represent the fact that leopards were once used in Ancient Rome and Greece to guard city gates from marauders.

Previous art work replaced by Artforms WA

Local residents were extremely unhappy with the fibreglass artwork that was not installed by Artforms. This displeasure resulted in the leopards being set on fire to force their removal.

 Both community and council required the original work to be replaced. Our team was asked to rescue the failed artwork.

Replacement art work by Artforms WA

Artform WA’s replacement work was constructed from solid granite. We used 3DS Max to create a model, and then exported a DXF file which our team of stonecutters could read. Designed and created in 2011, the three leopard heads are still proudly sitting at the end of Spearwood Avenue, Perth WA.
