In  what could be taken  as  a  scene from   another   film  version of  John Wyndham's 1962  sci-fi  book, The  Day  Of  The   Triffids ,  are  these  striking  seven metre  high  stainless  steel sculptures , representing  Sun , Wind  and  Rain , by  Col Henry , of  Wyong Creek ,  NSW.  Erected  last year  outside  the  Eddie  Koki  Mabo  Library,  James  Cook  University, Queensland, the  artwork   emits  unpredictable  variations  in  solar  powered   lighting ,   rain  in the  form of  mist  and  has  leaves , shaped  like  the  local  Almond Tree , which rattle  in  the  wind.
