Working bullocks provided the muscle needed for our infant colony. While Australia ‘rode on the sheep’s back’, the wool that brought our prosperity rode the dusty miles from outback stations to the port on lumbering bullock wagons.
Commissioned by the Gulargambone Community Enterprises Co-operative through the MDB Energise Enterprise Fund, the concept of this installation was created by local artist Alison Dent. Local Coonamble sculpture artist Brian Campbell brought this concept to life, taking six months to complete the six individual bullocks made of steel rod and recycled wire netting.
This project was funded by Coonamble Shire Council, RANSW Country Art Support Program and the Gulargambone Community Enterprises Co-operative.
