This is a part of the newly completed commission for a public sculpture, large front of building bas relief screens and car park screens for the Long Tan RSL Lifecare facility in Newcastle.
The Pod Front Screens are caste stainless steel which measure 3.5m wide x 2.7 m high, and 3.5m wide x 1.3m high in the screen above the awning. These screens depict multiple seed pods in bas relief. They mimic the pod of the Valour sculpture and serve to reiterate the valour theme for the building.
The screens relate to the Valour Sculpture which commemorates Major Peter Badcoe who served in Vietnam and the servicemen who fought in the Battle of Long Tan, Vietnam. (Refer also Valour Sculpture)
