What an amazing new addition to the Sculpture down the Lachlan trail between Forbes and Condobolin along the Lachlan River.
‘Varanus’ by Australian sculpture Glen Star Star Steel Art, is a giant 20m Goanna, Gugaa or Girawa in Wiradjuri.
This sculpture tells the significance of Gugaa to Wiradjuri people, as a totemic animal as well as an important food source. ‘The bigger the Gugaa the more people fed. Contented bellies meant a contented tribe’
Congratulations to Forbes Arts Society, Forbes Shire Council and Evolution Mining Ltd on the unveiling this magnificent sculpture.
