'The Angel of Edgecliff' posted by Fran


'The mural facing eastbound traffic stopped at the lights' posted by Fran


The Angel of Edgecliff

an experience of city and town

On a wall facing traffic heading east on New South Head Road is a perpetual mural. For 20 years, commuters heading east on New South Head Rd have been greeted by the lithe form of the lady of Edgecliff. The artist, Bruno Dutot, has updated his original work about 300 times since 1989. Every few months the painting changes. The theme is always the same, though: an angel facing us or facing away from us in a reverential/celestial pose. Dutot exhibits paintings in a showroom opposite Edgecliff train station.
