The two giant Banksia pods stand as monuments to the Australian plant species that have been destroyed in the last two centuries and as a warning of the dangers of climate change. They evoke the transitory life cycle of our iconic plant, while the felled tree stump plinths remind us that destruction of the bush continues as we watch.
