nurses 1999

A competition entry for Anzac Parade in Canberra to commemorate nurses' involvement in wars. An extensive bronze seat saying "We too were there" symbolically provides support for those that sit on it, as well as acceptance of ceremonial wreathes. More seats as crosses throughout have inscriptions of how many people were cared for in each campaign. Surrounding trees are gifts from countries that nurses served in. All is left to weather.
