"A Folly for Mrs Macquarie" is a sculpture in the Royal Botanic Gardens with breathtaking views of Farm Cove and Sydney Harbour. In architecture, a folly is an extravagant decorative structure designed more for artistic expression than practicality. The Royal Botanic Gardens were developed from 1816 under the direction of Elizabeth Macquarie, the second wife of Governor Lachlan Macquarie. This work was created by Fiona Hall and installed in 2000 at the possible site of an original folly which looks across to Mrs Macquaries Point. Constructed from wrought iron and sandstone, it makes a statement about the follies of white settlement. It depicts a raised arm and clasped dagger from Macquarie's crest, a domed roof of metal Norfolk Island Pine fronds and an underlying, a ceiling of bones representing the animals that once lived in this area, barbed wire walls and an entrance bounded by an axe and scythe.
