"Dignity and Permanence"Print Page
The sculpted basalt rock from Adelong titled ‘Dignity and Permanence’, was created by world renowned Austrian rock sculptor, Andreas Buisman. It is installed, together with the boulders, to create a contemplative space, emanating dignity and the power of permanence. This memorial reflects the country from where these volunteer soldiers came, and hints at where they went. The rocks represent the young men from Bombala lost in World War One, and a particularly prominent boulder came from the property where one of them had grown up.
