Is it an alien artifact ? A remnant of an ancient civilisation ? No, it's art Jim. It is a shiny steel monolith, stamped with words that attempt to conjure the better parts of human nature, tokens of the continuing search for passion, and bubbles that represent the effort to succeed in life . A "machine" for INSPIRATION.
The sculpture is the work of George Town artists Mark Hoban, Bruno Barcodi and the late PeterHjort.
