From a giant buddha-like man on a cliff to works made using 3D printers, Sydney's Sculpture by the Sea is back and serving up its usual, unusual selection of works.

Now in its 22nd edition, the exhibition turns one of Australia's most iconic stretches of coastline into a huge outdoor sculpture park.

Let's take a look at some of the weird and wacky creations to wash up at this year's event.
