In Bibles & Bullets artist Fiona Foley communicates history with three significant artworks in Redfern Park. There are several components to this artwork including an intuitive play scape for young children, a fountain and water play environment and a skate park for older children.
The various sections stimulate the senses, inviting imaginative play rather than giving prescriptive cues for structured activity. They simultaneously provide sophisticated sculptural additions to the public space, rich in associative and sensual appeal.
The natural forms and seed pods of plants inspired the group of sculptural play elements and the water play environment. The artist gathered reference material from walks throughout the local area and themed the play elements around native flora. Oversized seed pods are scattered amongst ancient fig trees, and the fig itself played an important part in the Aboriginal diet.
