When a large wattle was damaged by lightning, an opportunity emerged to use the stump to capture the essence of the area. Sculptor Rob Bast carved this magnificent pair of cockatoos over four days, working within the unique shape of the twin trunks of the old tree. 

The work is located close to a significant area of Croydon South that was originally subdivided by celebrated architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin.
