Sentinel was the first of three sculptures commissioned by Manningham Council to mark the major gateways to the city. It stands approximately 13 metres high and weighs 12 tonnes.
Created by internationally renowned artist and long-term Manningham resident Inge King, Sentinel was conceived as an icon of the City of Manningham and the sculpture casts a watchful eye over the area. The multicoloured crown is the focal point of the work. Its curved shapes symbolise the two creeks of the municipality, the Mullum Mullum and the Koonung. They enclose the blue oval form representing the City of Manningham.
