This work of art is a powerful expression of indigenous cultures. Bara are hooks carved from turban shells and used by Gadigal fisherwomen for thousands of years.
Sculpted in marble with a unique sparkling finish, the shape of the six-meter-high work resembles the pearly sails of the Opera and the coves of the port. The artwork gently emanates sunlight around the harbor, engaging a dialogue with the shimmering ocean water. At night, the artwork is illuminated to appear to reflect the light of the moon, with the artwork's prominent location allowing it to be viewed from various vantage points across the harbour.
