QVB Wishing Well
At the western end of the magnificent Queen Victoria Building in downtown Sydney, next to an imposing statue of the lady herself, is a rather unusual wishing well. It features a bronze statue of the Queen's favourite dog, Islay, a Skye Terrier. He is raised on his hind paws, cast in bronze with realistic fur and panting mouth. And he has been given the power of speech. Or rather, he has been given a recorded message by radio personality John Laws which broadcasts every few minutes asking passers-by to throw a coin into the well and make a wish. Islay raises thousands of dollars for the NSW Institute for Deaf and Blind children every year. Not bad for a statue.
