Sea of Hands

Every year a public art work known as the Sea of Hands is created on one of the lawns at the University of Sydney.

The Sea of Hands is made from the colours of the Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian flags (black, blue, green, red, white and yellow), and each bears the name of the person who planted it.
