The Suikinkutsu at the entrance of the Broome Shire Council,WA was installed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Broome-Taiji Sister-town Relationship. Simon Wearne, who has learned the art of Suikinkutsu making from Master Kubo, completed this installation using all local materials, plus stones from Taiji (grey stones in centre). The installation coincided with the naming of the street in front of the Taiji Town Council as "Broome St". The Broome suikinkutsu features special stones permitted from Yawuru People, the traditional owners in the Kimberley region and native plants, showing distinctive Broome landscape. This is the 5th suikinkutsu by Team Kubo, who has been installing this beautiful land art with a specific aim to communicate and celebrate the importance of peace, friendship, natural environment and local culture. With this installation, we acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, and the Japanese ancestors who came across the sea, worked hard in a foreign land, many of whom never saw their homeland again.
