Artist's Description

My grandmother, 8 generations back who was named Mary, came to Australia on the First Fleet as a convict. She spend a few years in prison on Norfolk Island, for “borrowing” horse to get the doctor, when her friend was in labour. When she gained her freedom she married William, who was also on the First Fleet as a free settler and a shipwright. Their story was written in a book called “The Convict and the Carpenter” On my visit to the early convict goal, in Richmond, Tasmania, I looked into the women’s cell and saw these leg irons, I thought of Mary.
