Return from Tasmania and “must see”…”The Wall”

Another trip highlight from my recent visit to Tasmania, was visiting “The Wall”.  I had heard from friends that this was a “must see” and I am so glad I did.  Truly an inspirational artwork and artist. 
 
Self funded, in 2003 Greg Duncan began his creation of a 100 metre huon pine wall sculpting some of the history of Tasmania into these 3 metre high panels.  He is over half way now and aims to complete “The Wall” by 2015.
 
Fortunately I had an opportunity to meet Greg and was so inspired by the work of this modest and obviously dedicated and patient artist.
 
“The Wall” is located on the road from Hobart to Strahan just near the Derwent Bridge in a purpose built gallery to house this masterpiece.  Set amongst beautiful bushland, it is just magnificent and will have you thinking in wonder days after your visit.  Certainly did for me and as we continued our travels, it was wonderful to hear “the word” of “The Wall” being spread amongst others who had visited or on their way.  Now back in Sydney I have friends planning their trips around ensuring a visit to this amazing artwork and legacy that is being created by Greg Duncan.
