Sculpture in front of Shell House, cnr Spring and Flinders Street


  1. It is very striking whatever it is. A bit hard to tell from this excellently framed detail.

  2. You know the whole Shell building is shaped like a shell when viewed from above. It is also the first 'sky scraper' in melbourne that used extensive amount of pre cast concrete to reduce construction times. The technlogies used to build that building are now standard.

  3. Hey Chrome. It's a sculpture of the Shell company's shell logo.

    Hello db. I think I read that in the guide book for my Walking Melbourne tour. Shell House is one of the buildings in it...actually no. I just checked and it says it's curved in an S shape. Nothing about the concrete.
