NO IDEA

I spotted this small statue along Oxford st in Leederville the other day. It appears to be a miner crawling out of a manhole. Effective? Yes. Reason? No Idea. I kind of expected the building behind to be a mines department office or a mining contractors HQ but it's mostly empty and for lease. So it just seems an odd piece for this spot. I'm guessing the torch under his chin lights up at night.

Just ignore the giant finger that appears to be attacking my camera
