The sculpture Hand of Truth references the boab trees of remote Western Australia, some of which became notorious as "prison trees" where Aboriginal prisoners were held until they could be transfered to regular jails in larger urban centres. The sculpture explores history at the margins, the shadowy aspects we'd rather not face but which often go to the heart of who we are.
