Behind the scenes

I'm pretty sure the kids at my daughters pre-school haven't seen Cai Guo-Qiang's Heritage, which was commissioned for his show Falling Back To Earth at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane last year.

Regardless, I'm sure you'll agree their creative arrangement of animals (and a dinosaur, and a truck!) had a striking resemblance to his sublime installation. I had to laugh as they quizzically asked me why I was taking a photo of the table, but they seemed quite chuffed when I told them it was because it reminded me of a really cool artwork. Unfortunately I couldn't take this one home to pin on the fridge...
