The quilt-like image of this work references Canberra’s Aboriginal and European cultural and natural history. The design features the Molonglo River, the bogong moth, kangaroo grass and oral histories. It also includes reminiscences by Paul McDermott from the celebrated comedy troupe 'The Doug Anthony All Stars' who busked on the site in the late 1980's.
