Quite literally in the middle of nowhere, in the outback of Australia hundreds of miles from civilization, on a large, shimmering salt lake, there is art.
Driving 500 miles east from Perth on a single road where you can go for hours without seeing another car, you will suddenly come across 51 human figures, stick-thin but life size, strewn across 10 square miles of the lake.
These incredible sculptures were placed at the lake in 2003 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Perth Art Fair, and have remained there since.
After the exhibition, the sculptures were sold to the state of Western Australia by British artist Antony Gormley (see Angel of the North, later on this list) for a token sum of $1. Now valued at $6 million, they have become the target of crooks and vandals, who have stolen two of the sculptures and damaged another.
