"The five metre arbour sculpture stands pride of place as a tribute to Mount Morgan, its incredible history, and some of its inspirational residents. "- from the sign.
"The creation of the arbour, with its many levels and layers, partly takes its inspiration from the bench levels of the Mount Morgan Mines' Open Cut Pit. Its design also commemorates a former, favourite meeting place for locals, the Mount Morgan Tree of Knowledge. This fig tree, planted in the 1920s, provided a cool shady resting place where many stories were shared until sadly succumbed to disease in 2011.
Adorned with bougainvillea, this sculpture also recognises the youth and a robust and vibrant future while the entwined, abstract trees that interconnect represent community strength and unity. Albert Abbie and Michael Rowe embody those wonderful qualities of the tree of knowledge cherished by the Mount Morgan community.
Albert Abbie Rowe was a well-respected stalwart of the Mount Morgan community serving on the executive for the Mount Morgan Rotary, Providence Lodge, Mount Morgan Historical Museum, Dee and Welfare Bowls Clubs.
Michael Rowe is also a well-respected member of the Mount Morgan community serving the community through Mount Morgan Rotary, Providence Lodge, Dee Lodge, Mount Morgan Lodge, Mount Morgan Pony Club, both Bowls Clubs and the Mount Morgan Show Society. "- from the sign.
