This is the way the family used to gather. This sculpture represents the importance of the family group, staying together and staying connected to the land. The circle represents this unity, and the rocks represent strength and the earth, holding the group together.

The eight figures in this sculpture are the different members of the family group. The father is the figure with the spear with his leg raised, the mother is holding the baby girl and stands with the young son, the little figures represent a young daughter and son dancing, while the older brothers play the Didgeridoo and throw the Boomerang.
