Impotent Sentinels

Frankston, Australia

Artist's Description

Bushfire Aftermath, Marysville.
.
The bushfires of Black Saturday, February 7th 2009 wrought havoc and tragedy on townships in Victoria, Australia

The two large pipes capable of delivering large volumes of water were insufficient to withstand the ferocity of the fire and stand as beaten and impotent sentinels.
More than 170 people perished in the ferocious blaze which destroyed more than 2,000 properties.
