Rock of Ages by Crowmanic

Currently unavailable for purchase

Original stone carving/statue (part of the Fountain of Tears) is at Colebrook Reconciliation Park on Shepherds Hill Road, Eden Hills, Sth Australia. It is part of a tribute monument (31 May 1998), on the site of the original Colebrook Home for Aboriginal Children 1943-1972, commissioned by Colebrook Tji Tji Tjuta Dreaming Committee, with assistance from the Blackwood Reconciliation Group.

[the green “spikes” are reeds growing from the rock pool at the base of the fountain ]

I have applied texture and tonal effects to my original photograph, for emphasis and effect.
