Public Sculpture by Maree Clarke and Vicki Couzens of Victoria
Aboriginal culture originates in connection to Country. As custodians and caretakers of Country through ongoing cycles of honouring and renewal we nurture and replenish the Land enacting ceremony and song.
The kangaroo apple is a symbol of this time of the renewal (spring); a time of plenty, of the gathering of the clans, the changing of the seasons.
Corner Long Island Drive and Wells Street
- Materials: Bronze
- Dimensions: 750 x 200cm
This work will be resting casually on a rock alongside the boardwalk as if it had just been placed there, awaiting the return of the owner to pick it up and continue on their daily business. It will indicate to the casual observer or passerby the presence of Aboriginal people going about their daily domestic activities, gathering food, preparing food, perhaps fishing.
Images of Kangaroo Apple are available in the Image Gallery.
