Stephen Brown wanted to give people something to smile about during lockdown.
Yesterday, the metal sculptor unveiled his latest piece, a 5.5 metre tall sunflower windmill.
The windmill took him two weeks to create but has been on his mind for a while.
"I always wanted to make one and had been googling them but hadn't seen anything this size," he said. "I wanted a large one that was unique. i'm not sure if it's the biggest but it's pretty well the biggest i have seen."
It features 24 petals on the sunflower and three leaves at the back that counter rotate.
"It's the first moving structure I've built, normally it's just ornament stuff, so had to make it right," Brown said. "It was a challenge but I have some experience in building prototype stuff."
The sunflower windmill is now part of Brown's display on the corner of Lethbys Road and the Loddon Valley Highway. He also has a large tulip, two Anzac pieces and an Alice in Wonderland garden.
"I get a lot of people driving by, stopping and buying little roses or tooting horns," he said. "Luckily, there is a rest area across the road, so people can stop and take photos.
"It's hard to miss. When go round the block, you can see the windmill form Sailors Gully Road, right through the trees."
Brown is already planning his next adventurous piece.
"It's a pirate ship with a dragon on it," he said. "The whole thing will be about four metres long and three metres high, and weigh about a tonne."
