Craige Andrae, Forgotten Australians Memorial, 2010, stainless steel

The South Australian Memorial to the Forgotten Australians consists of four huge stainless steel daisies, each in a different state of opening, as a symbol of hope and healing for children (now adults) who suffered harm in out of home care.

The tallest of the daisies is over six metres and can be seen from quite a distance.

The concept was developed by artist Craige Andrae, who was inspired by his love and hopes for his own small children. The memorial is located in RedGum Park/ Karrawirra in the aptly name corner known as Peace Park.
