Located near a public sports facility the art work aims at engaging the visitor to push themselves to their personal best. The pursuit of excellence as a community and breaking mental barriers that holds us back were common themes in the brief. The City of Casey further elaborates on their website, the aims and aspirations of the sculpture and how well it was received by the community.
While the sculpture is completed, the finish will continue to oxidize for a few months before it reaches its final rusted state in September 2019.
