Jill Peck 1997

Canberra sculptor Jill Peck has created a large scale Harcourt granite boat form at the westernmost point of the island as a metaphor for journeys, water and knowledge. A path leads up a bank between two mounds to reveal this unexpected resting place for contemplation. The prow of the sculpture and the prow of the Island point downstream towards the city's horizon.
