Original stone carving/statue (part of the Fountain of Tears) is at Colebrook Reconciliation Park on Shepherds Hill Road, Eden Hills, Sth Australia.

This 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.

[I applied a texture + tonal effects to my original photograph, for emphasis and effect.]

    I love the colors, the statues become more organic with the grasses growing up around them, wonderful piece!

  • Thanks Kate… you have now become a member of the select few… cheers.

    I find this quite haunting … textures are amazing … weird thing is as it downloaded I thought I was suddenly looking at an image of myself … quite spooky!

  • Thank you for your frank and genuine comment. (perhaps its an ancestral/genetic kind of “spooky”? eg, genetic-memory)
