King George Square creates a space that reflects the historic values of the city, as well as King George Square's evolving role as a destination, transit hub and ceremonial and civic heart of the city.
The equestrian statue of King George was actually a winning piece by the Australian sculptor, Edward Frederick Kohler, for a national competition in Australia.
Before his King George bronze creation pushed him to greater stardom, his first works were limited to horse and other animal clay models. Later his skills evolved to produce war memorials, trophies and other mementos. Edward Kohler was also the chief sculptor at the Ajax Plaster Company. Kohler’s other famous works are his religious statues, which are spread across Australia.
