Carnifex is a public artwork that explores Croydon’s history from the Pleistocene and depicts the marsupial lion, which may have lived and hunted in the area. Although a century of debate has ensured about whether it was a ‘peaceful possum’ or a 'lethal predator', current evidence suggests it was definitely the latter and could have been the origin of stories of the fearsome bunyip.

This project was developed through funding from the Maroondah City Council Arts and Cultural Grant Program.
