Pioneer memorial

This memorial, dedicated to the pioneers of Seymour and  District represents life and its transition through time.  The ellipse represents the continuous cycle of life, and is angled with its leading edge buried in the earth.  The vertical spaces in the curved bluestone wall represents life`s progress which is sometimes broken.

The rough cut granite columns are remnants of surrounds from early graves.  They represent the growth of a person from birth in the east to maturity and finally death at sunset.

The memorial, like life itself, has no roof, and is therefore exposed to all of its elements
