A Hill, a river, two rocks and a Presence.

John Davis 1997

Working in an open grassed area, Melbourne sculptor John Davis has combined the elements of water, timber, vegetation and limestone. These elements are found in the natural landscape and provide a sense of place and recognition of the island's source.
The original river (pictured above) was made of tree branches with ripples coming up from them. These were damaged and John Davis replaced them with the sandstone river pictured below.
