Kangaroos On The Terrace

Artists Concept

“The Mob” Kangaroos on the Terrace.

This public artwork celebrates one of the world’s most unique animals:
The Kangaroo. Captured in full flight, having been startled as it were, by the sudden appearance of noisy traffic - a vision from the future perhaps?- they bound through this highly structured modern urban space, like shadows from an ancient past; flashing across the inner eye; creating a startling visual counterpoint to their surroundings and an instant reminder that these magnificent creatures were migrating through this area from the Swan River foreshore, up through the chain of lakes upon which the City was built less than 200 years ago. Kangaroos foraged here for millions of years before our species, Homo Sapiens, emerged from the Savannahs of ancient Africa, a mere 150,000 years ago.  

A celebration of a true Australian Icon!
