Der Rufer (The Caller) is believed to have been inspired when the artist was standing beside a man who called across a river to attract the ferryman on the other side. The sculpture in the Cultural Centre is one of a number produced by the artist, including one erected in Berlin in 1989 shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall, where The Caller is said to be calling ‘peace’.

You can find Der Rufer sculpture in the Art Gallery of Western Australia's courtyard terrace, accessible from the Garden Gallery, 10am-5pm, Wednesday - Monday.
