The Spirit Orb is Meg Geer and Richard Thompson's winning sculpture for the Eumundi Sculpture Prize 2015 themed 'ANZAC Spirit: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow'. The Spirit Orb is designed as a memorial to those who fought but also to invoke a sense of gratitude for the lives we enjoy today. The 20 Eumundi ANZAC Soldiers who sacrificed their lives are represented by 20 birds, their spirits soaring. Climbing and playing on this sculpture is a symbolic gesture of thanks to those that have fought to defend our freedoms and a reminder that peace is a global responsibility that starts with peace in our hearts. The hidden inscription - a silent prayer that we may learn from our past mistakes. Located at Eumundi Ampitheatre, Memorial Avenue Eumundi.
