Which public artwork makes you stop and look up?

Some like Jason Wing’s piercing blue cherubs of In Between Two Worlds, which light up an unassuming Chinatown alleyway (shown above). A favourite of creative urban planner John O’Callaghan:

The blue clouds and suspended spirits turn an old laneway into a destination. They’re also a great mashup of Aboriginal and Chinese cultures, a uniquely Australian experience.
