This public art was commissioned in response to the devastating 2011 Floods. The sculpture was influenced by the abundance of water birds that appear following the floods. Reflecting the image of a phoenix; the universal symbol of renewal, it represents the Texas community’s ability to overcome adversity.
The project was funded by Queensland and Australian Governments under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) Flexible Funding Program.
This beautiful art piece is located in High Street Texas (in the CBD area).
