AMP statuary

Repost 2017:

Hadnt noticed this before, on the 1930 Collins Street #AMPbuilding above the door – a #Statuary group known as #Amicus, apparently part of every #AMPbuilding, even into the 60s. Full title “Amicus certus in re incerta” (translation “”a friend in need is a friend indeed”). Here’s some others, first is 1912 from Oamaru NZ, the second from Brisbane, built the same year, 3rd is Perth, all that’s left of theirs, re-erected at Floreat Waters lake, last is Sydney, 1960, by Tom Bass.
