Rookwood, Human Donation Memorial

The Human Donation Memorial is located in Rookwood Cemetery in the western suburb of Rookwood. Created by Everton for the University of Technology Sydney, this Memorial commemorates the people who have donated their bodies to medicine and science. The art pieces include an array of corten steel panels with the design of a remembrance tree for the purpose of flower placement during ceremonies. A brass disk artwork is the focal point of the memorial garden along with a series of uniquely designed bronze plaques sitting upon cylindrical granite plinths nearby.
