Three weathered laser cut steel panels interpret Orphan’s School Creek, a tributary of Johnson’s Creek, which runs through the site, now encased in a concrete channel.  The Eora tribe used to fish in the creek, and aboriginal artist Adrina Khobane has interpreted the women’s fishing line thrown into the water for design inspiration.
