A 6.4-metre-tall marble sculpture has been revealed on the stretching lawns on the headland overlooking Bennelong Point and Circular Quay, honouring the multifaceted living history of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. Created by Waanyi artist Judy Watson and commissioned by the City of Sydney, this colossal crescent is called Bara, meaning 'shell hook' in Gadigal language, and is a tribute to the ancient living culture that called this part of Sydney home for thousands of years, as well as recognising the destructiveness of colonial settlement.
