The beautifully carved bench looking out onto the Swan River at Point Walter is the craftsmanship of Nic Compton and Nyoonar artist, weaver, sculptor Sharyn Egan.. you can see much more detail here. One of many works that acknowledge Australia's dark past. The Stolen Generations (clear read if you aren't sure about the history) during the 1900's when Aboriginal children were taken from their parents in an attempt to assimilate them into white society. Children being removed from their parents is still happening today, not in Australia, as a parent I can't even begin to imagine what that would be like.. I hope I never have to find out! Bit heavy today, but history is history and facts are facts. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..
