It may look strange to see a perfectly normal statue of a man, but then mounted upside down. However, there is significance behind it. The statue is located in Melbourne, Australia and is a statue of Charles La Trobe, the first lieutenant-governor of the colony of Victoria, which is now a state of Australia. The artist of the statue, Charles Robb, wanted to bring attention to the understated acknowledgement of La Trobe, and mounted it upside down to represent the meaninglessness of public figures and statues.
