Tumbling Cubes [Bert Flugelman. 1978. Stainless steel]

This is a sculpture in Margaret Timpson Park, Belconnen, called Tumbling Cubes. The artist, Herbert (Bert) Flugelman was born in Vienna in 1923, and migrated to Australia at the age of 15. He has a number of recognisably similar sculptures throughout Australia, including Cones at the National Gallery of Australia, Pyramid Tower in Spring Street, Sydney (previously installed in Martin Place, and also known as the Silver Shish Kebab), and Spheres in Rundle Mall, Adelaide (also known as the Mall's Balls).
