A Very Unusual Church

Michael John

Oatley, Australia

Artist's Description

This image shows unusual individual cubicles inside the chapel at the Port Arthur Separate Prison.

Convicts were secured into individual box cubicles so that they could not see or communicate with their fellow inmates, just the preacher in front of them.

Port Arthur is a small town and former convict settlement on the Tasman Peninsula, in Tasmania, Australia. It is one of Australia’s most significant heritage areas, and is a Heritage Listed site.

Port Arthur Historic Site, Tasmania, Australia.
