Gillie and Marc created ‘Pyramid’ as a symbol of a perfect balance of community and friendship. However, after donating it as part of the Forbes Sculpture Trail, not everyone from the town was feeling the community spirit. In the lead-up to the 2014 NRL Grand Final, rival fans dressed the artwork in Bulldogs and Rabbitohs team colors. “I love [the sculpture], but I know my community is divided over it,” said Forbes Mayor Phyllis Miller. “I find it quite bizarre that anyone can find anything sexual in it. I know there’s genitalia but it’s about diversity. And I even see humor in it.” Forbes Arts Society president Keith Mullette said nudity had brought out Forbes’ ‘conservative heritage.’ He also said he loved the statue and it had already drawn tourism dollars to the town. “It’s been the most photographed thing in town for the past 12 months.”
