"Ophelia", the large face statue by Deborah Halpern has become the face of Melbourne. Deborah Halpern is a well-respected ceramic and mosaic artist who is inspired by the free spirit of Pablo Picasso. She has been passionate about her form of art for the past 20 years and has pieces on display throughout the country. Deborah Halpern’s "Ophelia" is situated near the main entrance to Southgate. Deborah believes her work is a joyful expression of her life. Like Angel in Birrarung Marr, Ophelia is decorated with a “big face”, giving the artwork life and emotion.
