Coogee, Reclaiming Spirit

'Reclaiming Spirit', also known as the Bali Memorial, is located in Dunningham Reserve at Dolphin Point, in the eastern suburb of Coogee. Located at the end of a winding pathway, this bronze sculpture was created by Sasha Reid in 2003, dedicated to the Australian victims of the Bali bombings in 2002. There were twenty victims from the eastern suburbs, including six members of the Coogee Dolphins rugby league team. The sculpture represents three linked figures signifying family, friends and community.
