Melbourne trip to patinate Mary Mackillop Statue

I have just bought my plane tickets to go over to Melbourne , to supervise the colouring of the Mary MacKillop Statue on Tuesday 9th December, and hope to have it completed by Thursday night when I fly back home. Fundere Fine Art Foundry will do the patination and all should be ready for me by then. After the patination which will include some colour, They will then wax the Bronze and then pack and store the bronze Ready for the trip across to Adelaide, SA.
The dedication will be at 12:15 pm Sunday 22nd March, 2009, outside the Adelaide Catholic Cathedral on the Victoria Square side on Mary MacKillop Place, which is also to be named and dedicated at the same time.
We will all have to wait till then to see the final bronze.
I am off for a break today, leaving for Peru and Antartica. It should be a wonderful trip and I hope to take stunning photos. If I can I will post some blog, so for now,
see you all again when I return.
