Growing Up

Hossein Valamanesh

Growing Up by Hossein Valamanesh continues the artists’ exploration of human identity. The notion of identity is an abstract concept and can be difficult to grasp but Valamanesh handles it with ease. The ladder is symbolic of humankind’s inner life and journey. This sculpture is located on the corner of Flinders Street and Divett Place.
