Bench of Contemplation


As with so many journeys, a chance to pause, contemplate and reflect adds much to our experience. The Bench of Contemplation, placed to one side of the Show Garden's screens, offered just such a chance.

Wrought out of random strands representing human thought and DNA, the bench was conceived as a conversation piece and a conversation facilitator.

It encourages us to reflect upon our role as guardians of the environment and provides an opportunity to pause for a moment and become conscious of our past and our aspirations for the future.
