About Wall in the Wilderness

Something special is taking place in the heart of Tasmania, and you are invited to witness its creation. Sculptor Greg Duncan is carving the history of Tasmanian Highlands in the form of a sculpted wall. So far, Greg has carved scenes depicting the workers of the Hydro-Electric Scheme and of the forestry industry, and scenes concerning the environmental plight of the wedge-tail eagle and the extinction of the thylacine (the Tasmanian tiger). The idea may be simple, but the scale is breathtaking: Greg is aiming to carve 300 square metres of wood to form The Wall, a task he estimates will take ten years to complete. In the meantime, you are welcome to visit The Wall and see history in the making.
