Look to the skies

sirius sculpture gromit

Meet our high-flying hounds before they next take off.

The new hound on the block is none other than the Dog Star himself, ‘Sirius’. Not only is he the brightest star in the night sky, he’s also part of the constellation Canis Major, which is Latin for ‘the greater dog’. And there is no greater dog than Gromit.

Returning favourites include ‘Caractacus Paws’, the cracking canine from GU2. This magical car raised money for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, which saves the region’s sickest children and babies.

Representing GU Hong Kong are the soaring sculptures ‘Dreamy Balloons’ and ‘Wings’. With a little spruce and newly pumped balloons, these two complete our ‘look to the skies’ collection.

    “Near, far, in our motor car. Oh, what a happy time we’ll spend”. There’s never a dull moment with ‘Caractacus Paws’, the fantasmagorical machine from the children’s classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Our fine four-fendered friend may head airborne if you don’t keep your eye on him. Do any car fans fancy taking this magical motor for a spin?

    Designed by the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang team at EON Productions and painted by Em Ketteringham.

    Designed for Gromit Unleashed Hong Kong, ‘Dreamy Balloons’ is a paw-pular sculpture featuring in over five exhibitions – what a busy lad.  After starring in multiple exhibitions, ‘Dreamy Balloons’ has had a little refresh ahead of the showcase – featuring some fresh balloons. Enjoy his updated design before he goes up, up and away.

    Oh, to be the brightest star in the Earth’s night sky. Shining bright with intrinsic luminosity, the glowing celestial Dog Star is one sirius-ly vibrant star. This beaming beagle is part of the Canis Major constellation and Latin for ‘the greater dog’. And what greater dog is there none other than Gromit himself?

    Wings

    Location:
    The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

    The ever-so-elegant ‘Wings’ Gromit is a delightful dragon, symbolising power, strength and good luck. Melbourne artist Sonia Kretschmar based her design on her idiosyncratic take on a Chinese dragon. Sonia was fascinated with the idea that many buildings in Hong Kong have been designed to accommodate the needs of dragons, so designing Wings was a natural choice.
