Standing together facing south to the sea and collecting salt spray, these lichen-covered stones seem reminiscent of Lot's wife. Sheoaks swish softly behind them.

Part of the artist-in-residence program at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston, Tasmania (1996, 1998) and exhibited in resulting solo exhibition, Fragility & Endurance, at the Gallery in December 2000 — February 2001.
