Tom Bass was one of Australia's leading sculptors. He created many of the country's most significant public works, including the 70 foot, copper lintel sculpture for the entrance to the National Library of Australia.
Sculptured Seal explores the process of constructing a large sculpture, from the initial idea to the careful planning, fabrication and final installation. Tom Bass drew from symbolic, classical imagery as well as the Australian natural landscape to create this magnificent work of art.
