This sculpture is formed of six spheres made of coloured polymer concrete. The cluster of objects emphasise the interconnectedness of life and the shpere echoes the community energy of Deloraine which gains strength from its unity. Fern shapes are impressed in the surface of the spheres and provide a reference to the super continent Gondwana. Five texts etched in the stainless steel bands are drawn from historical accounts of the Deloraine district alongside one contemporary text, bringing the past into the present.
