Barangaroo and the Sea of Hands installation artwork

Barangaroo was a powerful Cammeraygal woman, a key figure in local Aboriginal culture and community in the late 1700s and the wife of Wangal man, Woollarawarre Bennelong.

Inspired by historical portraits depicting Eora men, including Bennelong, adorned in customary markings, the designs for the Sea of Hands installation will include 16,000 hands in the colours of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flags. Come and plant a hand for reconciliation as this extraordinatry installation evolves during the week.
