Restoring the Aussie icon ‘the Dog On The Tuckerbox’

Luke Grant

Nick Stranks, Lecturer & Sculptor from the ANU School of Art and Design, joins Luke Grant to discuss his part in the restoration of the iconic ‘Dog On The Tuckerbox’ that was recently knocked from its sandstone pedestal in an attack the local mayor has called a “senseless bit of vandalism”.

 

Originally unveiled at a ceremony by prime minister Joseph Lyons at Snake Gully near Gundagai 1932, the ‘Dog’s repair work will be completed this week, before it gets strapped back onto a ute and driven back along the road to Gundagai.
