I stumbled across this sculpture recently in a courtyard behind an office building that contains the Darlinghurst Post Office. The building is located at 1 Oxford Street, on the border of the inner city suburbs of Surry Hills and Darlinghurst. The artwork is called Naissance Bronze by Arthur Sherman. The plaque reads: A symbolic representation of Australia, the sculpture from a distance appears as a burst of energy, its surface texture capturing the quality of lava, its foundation the kangaroo. Other figures representative of Australia evolve out of the kangaroo in marsupial fashion. The Aboriginal and White race are interlocked yet pulling apart at the top of the work. As in Aboriginal x-ray painting, the bones and muscles of the kangaroo, Aborigine and Captain Cook are exposed, merging with the roots of a Moreton Bay Fig Tree.
