This sculpture entitled ‘Bridal Costume for an FJ Holden’ represents the two most desired objects of the 1950s, to own a Holden car and to be a bride. It was cast in fibreglass from a full-size FJ Holden by the artist Margaret Dodd in 1987 and features flowers and a chicken wire veil adorning the roof and boot. The large gash torn in the driver’s side was made to represent the escaping bride.
