Whadjuk Ballardong Noongar artist Rod Garlett created this large-scale Aboriginal public artwork for Wellington Gardens in collaboration with artist Richie Kuhaupt and architect Fred Chaney.
Composed of six dramatic figures rendered in cast bronze, these powerful skeletal male figures face east, striding across the grass of Wellington Gardens. The designs originally stem from painted ceremonial markings found in historical photographs and have been reinterpreted by Rod Garlett in extensive consultation with elders in the local Aboriginal community.
The artwork also includes the development of a supplementary phone app which will add historical details and cultural richness to the project.
