When you arrive at the RSPCA you want to feel welcomed, you may be stressed or concerned for your animal, or you may be waiting outside patiently supporting your loved one. So it’s vital that the landscape you experience is calm, offers you shade and maybe a moment to sit and reflect. We hope that the calm sound of water, fragrant planting and overhead shade provided by the flowering Crepe Myrtles offer just that. This is also an opportunity for the RSPCA to promote the serious commitment it has to its core values the “5 Freedoms” that it strongly stands by: ‘Freedom from hunger and thirst’,’ Freedom from discomfort’, ‘Freedom from pain, injury and disease’, ‘Freedom to express normal behaviour’ and ‘Freedom from fear and distress’. The water feature sculpture was designed by OUTHOUSE design to represent the ‘ever flowing’ and reciprocal commitment from the stakeholders to the organisation, and from the organisation to the stakeholders. The different colours of the concrete represent ripples of commitment and the tonal bands of the 5 Freedoms. This major sculpture statement was created by one of Australia leading Sculptures, Roger Apte and by day its acts as a cool and calming statement to visitors and birds alike, and by evening it calmly shimmers under its soft lighting and stands as beacon of hope.
