The Wall-Derwent Bridge, Tasmania

The Surveying Profession is rarely glamourised with monuments and statues so this was a rare find hidden in the Tasmanian bush. (Tasmania is the big island to the south of the Australian mainland, affectionately known as Tassie, pronounced Tazzie). The timber is Huon Pine, a beautiful, sweet smelling timber from ancient trees. Well worth a visit fellow surveyors.Here is what they say athttp://www.thewalltasmania.com/...an inspirational tale carved fromthe mountains and rivers of theCentral Highlands of Tasmania.Artist Greg Duncan is creating a stunning sculpture at Derwent Bridge in the heart of Tasmania. The Wall in the Wilderness is Greg Duncan’s commemoration of those who helped shape the past and present of Tasmania’s central highlands.A work in progress, The Wall is being carved from three-metre high wooden panels. The carved panels will tell the history of the harsh Central Highlands region - beginning with the indigenous people, then to the pioneering timber harvesters, pastoralists, miners and Hydro workers.When completed The Wall will be 100 metres long. Greg Duncan’s sculpture The Wall will rank as a major work of art and tourist attraction in Tasmania.In the meantime, come and see history in the making atThe Wall in the Wilderness.
