The Woven Fish – Cairns Esplanade

Woven Fish by Brian Robinson, 2003.

« Created for the Esplanade redevelopment in 2003, Brian Robinson inadvertently formed the visual theme of the Cairns Esplanade and one of the most memorable pieces of public art in Australia.The Woven Fish are large sculptures located in the Lagoon. The fish are interpretations of the smaller woven fish forms that are often woven in palm leaves. The weaving of palm leaves is a tradition that dates back centuries in the Torres Strait. »
