Speaking to ABC Riverina Wagga Wagga Radio earlier this week, Peter expressed “I have an unusual process, of digging a shape directly out of the earth, and I get into the earth and form it. It is fitted with steel reinforcements, and then poured in concrete. The concrete forms, which takes on exposed patterns from the earth, where people will be able to stand and sit, and combines smooth forms, considered beforehand, that people will be able to climb into. It is a giant oval ring, which is symbolic of life, and you’ll be able to sit inside the sculpture and look up at the arch up towards the sky. I hope the public will enjoy it, I can’t wait for people to come and see it.”
