Koorden.. strength!



Standing strong in Wellington Gardens, six strikingly dramatic skeletal figures cast in bronze make up the dramatic Aboriginal public artwork Koorden. Conceived by Noongar artist Rod Garlett, Koorden, the Noongar word meaning strength, represents 'the Noongar people of South-Western Australia and their enduring cultural traditions'. I'm not sure if the photos do it justice, in reality it has a powerful presence. I see lights on the base of each sculpture, can you imagine how amazing it would look lit up at night..you know what I'm going to say right.. must get back for that shot :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  1. They are very striking and yes can you just imagine them lit up at night. We are off to SA at the end of the week for a month so will check back for that shot when we return :-) Hope all is well Diane

  4. Fierce and very dramatic. I think at night with the right light they'd send me fleeing into the wilderness! :)
