“Girringun Flame Tree”

2007, copper, stainless steel, locally harvested wood

The Flame Tree is a gift from The Girringun Aboriginal Corporation to the community of Cardwell in commemoration of Caring for Country, 2007, which restored land to the native population. It symbolizes a commitment to the environment and community; the flames nestled in the boughs of the tree represent peace and reconciliation, the waterfalls signify health and life for people and the planet.
