Respect, Unity and Peace – (c) 2014 Gerard Blacklock

I think in light of some the crazy stuff going on in the world and also closer to home, that this image is quite timely.

This is a sculpture in the inner west of Sydney, I think mainly for driving unity between the original owners of the land and the peeps who turned up in the last few hundred years 🙂

What I really like is the fact that this sculpture and surrounds are few from vandalism and graf, something only a very few things are immune to in the inner suburbs of Sydney. There are a few murals in Newtown/Enmore which seem to garner respect across all levels of society.

Here is to hoping peace, unity and respect can prevail in a world which we sadly call advanced.
