The work forms a gateway to the ACT Health Building and is rich with symbolic references to health and medicine. The work is a tribute to 'Seqvanae', Roman goddess of healing and includes red and silver crosses and a snake representing the Greek doctor 'Aesculapius'. Lettering on the work resembles an optometrist's eye test chart.
