A sculpture commissioned by Greenslopes Private Hospital is dedicated to the service and sacrifice of Australian men and women in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. It is also dedicated to war veterans and widows.  The sculpture has three components which feature the themes of mateship, service and sacrifice, compassion and remembrance.

Brisbane artists Laurindo de Abreu and Denise Murray designed the sculpture in consultation with the Hospital with assistance from art consultant Martin Stanton of Stanton Dewhurst  and architect Andrew Holmes of Phillips Smith Colwell. Many of the images were taken from specially selected photographs from the Australian War Memorial.

Front Inscription

 Greenslopes Private Hospital dedicates this memorial to the service and sacrifice of Australian men and women who have gone to war to protect our freedom. They taught us about the virtues of courage, selflessness, compassion and mateship. They created the Anzac Spirit and provided us with a deeper understanding of what it means to be Australian.
