the adaptable migrant by Suzie Bleach and Andy Townsend (NSW)

This sculpture won the "People's Choice" award this year.
Artists' statement: "A resolute exodus over epic distances into the unknown. Precious cargo: culture, history, memories. Searching for a place to belong."

Evocative of the early Afghan camel drivers who travelled Australia as hawkers.
