The Tjilbruke Gateway

This is yet another work of art representing the story of Tjilbruke. The forest of dead trees was created in 1995 near the Warraparinga Wetlands.

Circles around the tree trunks symbolise the fresh water springs formed from Tjilbruki's tear drops. The flow patterns on the ground refer to the gully winds for which the area is known, as well as the flow of the river and of life.
