The work includes a central ‘gate’ as a symbol of the meeting place, the exchange of ideas and a passage for development. The two stepped structures flanking the gate symbolises the stages to knowledge, understanding and achievement. Surrounding this are flags and totems which represent marks of progress through the stages of development.
