William Ricketts (1898 - 1993) - "Silence will speak"

Have you ever walked through a forest and felt like the trees were whispering? If you walk through William Ricketts enchanted forest maybe it is not so far fetched.

William Ricketts spent at least fifty years on the transformation of a natural old-growth eucalyptus forest into a place of spiritual renewal and quiet reflection where his 92 sculptures whispers words of wisdom. For 20 years he made journeys to live with the aboriginal tribes Pitjantjatjar and the Arrernete of Central Australia. It was here he found his inspiration for his amazing sculptures which, today overgrown by moss and vegetation gives the sculptures a new meaning to his creation.
