"Hand Upon Hand"Print Page Print this page

"Hand Upon Hand " was created to explore the theme of Federation and multiculturalism of Australia. The sculpture was developed as a vehicle for communication, a connection, between cultures. It features a series of hanging shells crafted from bronze, with selected words celebrating Australian society, engraved on them. Hand Upon Hand is interactive and tactile, and encourages unity through experience. Over time and use, the layering of hands on the shells will enhance its meaning, and reinforce the unity and diversity of our cultural backgrounds.

Accompanying the sculpture is a poem written by Adam Aitken, commemorated in a bronze plate adjacent to the site.
