On our way to Margaret River.

Quick stop in Koombana Bay for a look at this Aboriginal sculpture.

Wardandi Boodja is a five-and-half-meter steel bust sculpture representing a Noongar face and South West families. The artists (Alex & Nicole Mickle of Safehaven Studios) consulter with various families in the region to ensure the image was accurate and the concept was to demonstrate that the face was “no one’s yet everyone’s at the same time” The sculpture has been purposefully designed in such a way as to recognize all the families of the region. A comprehensive study of historical photographs dating from the 1870s to the early 1900s, coupled with contemporary images and faces of Noongar people has enabled us to create an image of a generic Noongar man
