I came upon this character at Bruno’s Art and Sculpture Garden in Marysville, Victoria. He would have been created after the horrific fire storm ripped through the town. The image left me feeling perplexed and puzzled as to his purpose. He stands high upon the upturned roots of a massive fallen, burnt gum tree, looking out towards the mountains. Is he a sign of hope and has risen from the ashes, is this enigma keeping a watchful eye for future danger?
