The boys, the moon and the sealions..



Too many times I've looked at but not stopped to explore the Moon sculpture at Elizabeth Quay in more detail. I hadn't noticed the moon symbol on the sphere and not taken the time to learn its story.. my bad! It is a fascinating piece of Aboriginal folklore if you follow the story below. Meika Place is a 'project to recognize the Whadjuk Noongar People, the first people of this place'. It's the least we can do! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  4. What an interesting story and sculpture. It's one of those places where you really have to take a close look to get an idea of what it represents. I'm glad you did!

  5. What a fine sculpture. I've always enjoyed origin stories from various cultures! And I agree with Marie that the sculpture is a great way to share this particular story. Thanks for your nice comments on Ocala, Grace! But I think you should buy the NSX. Just think how cool you would look tooling around Perth with your camera at the ready!

  10. It looks very contemporary...and certainly unique against the skyscrapers in the background.

  11. Hmmm. Is it dangerous to swim in the full moon for some reason? Usually their laws make sense, no? Sad story, Grace, and beautiful sculpture, too.
