Solve the jigsaw

This public artwork on St Georges Terrace celebrates one of the world’s most unique animals: the kangaroo. Captured in full flight, having been startled as it were by the sudden appearance of noisy traffic – a vision from the future perhaps? – they bound through this highly structured modern urban space, like shadows from an ancient past, flashing across the inner eye; creating a startling visual counterpoint to their surroundings and an instant reminder that these magnificent creatures were migrating for millions of years through this area from the Swan River foreshore, up through the chain of lakes upon which the City was built less than 200 years ago.
