Artist's Description

From the inscription on the sculptures plinth (located in Hobart Tasmania):
This memorial is dedicated to 295 innocent children removed from their families and loved ones sent to Tasmania between 1912 and 1972, under British and Commonwealth Child Migration Schemes”.

They were not wanted by the United Kingdom. Sadly, many of the displaced children were not well treated by their new homelands, either. As the sculpture implies, siblings were often separated from siblings. Lives were torn apart. More information here
