Frank Hurley at Manly Art Gallery and Museum

What is the statue in the photograph?

We have been the joint-curators for the Frank Hurley exhibition now on at the Manly Art Gallery & Museum.

One of the photographs of Sydney harbour has an arrangement to the right hand side that features a statue – see photograph above.

The photograph was probably taken around the 1930s (but we are not sure).

Our question is: Is there anyone out there with a knowledge of such objects that are – or have been – placed on view on the side of the harbour – probably around Rose Bay area – but we are not sure of that either?

Does anyone know anything about this statue?

Here’s an enlarge version.
