More than a year after his sudden death, a 3-piece sculpture has been installed on Perth's Swan River in honour of Aussie actor Heath Ledger. Fittingly, two of the pieces are chess boards, obviously a reflection of Ledger's fondness for the game, while the third piece features a yin and yang design. The scuptures were the work of Perth artist Ron Gomboc. There's a photo of him and his works here, courtesy of The West Australian.
Meanwhile, The Australian paper quotes Ledger's mother, Sally Bell, as saying: "As for the chess theme, not many people know that Heath was passionate about chess and was close to becoming a Grand Master."
