Why are these giant spray bottles at the beach?

The answer to that question is that the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition in Sydney is back.

The two week long free outdoor exhibition features dozens of sculptures on Bondi and Tamarama beaches and along the coastal path between them.

In its 19th year, the Sculpture by the Sea is one of the city's most popular exhibitions, stretches for 2km along the coastline and draws thousands of visitors.

This year 118 artists came to the beach, with 30 journeying from countries as diverse as Brazil, Poland, Japan and the Czech Republic.

The sculptures on display include works made from glass, metal and even champagne corks.

Rediff.com takes a look at some of the exhibits that grace the beaches of Sydney till November 8.
