Yaburgurt Winjan Cirkelstone – Coodanup

Yaburgurt Winjan Cirkelstone, the Thomas Dambo’s giant sculpture at Coodanup.

“The clouds must let the raindrops fall until the earth will open.”

Yaburgurt is the newest of the Danish artist, Thomas Dambo’s giant sculptures.

Yaburgurt was built with the assistance of FORM and local community volunteers, he was constructed from recycled materials, and installed in May 2023. Yaburgurt replaces the original Dambo giant Vivi Cirkelstone sculpture which was destroyed by arsonists in December 2022.

Yaburgurt is depicted as the big brother of Vivi and, in consultation with local Bindjareb Elders named honouring a respected local Elder, Yaburgurt or, George Winjan。

Yaburgurt Winjan Cirkelstone  rests on the land of the Bindjareb Noongar people and is seen creating a circle of stones around the memorial ashes of his beloved little sister Vivi Cirkelstone.

Bindjareb Elders and the community have welcomed Yaburgurt by creating a circle of care and protection around him.

Santi Ikto – Halls Head

Santi Ikto, is Thomas Dambo’s, giant sculpture at Halls Head.

“First the sun must hit the ocean, so the ocean turns to clouds.”

This majestic 7-metre-tall giant sits cross legged, high on the sand dunes overlooking the Indian Ocean.
He is a wise old giant with a big bushy beard fashioned from sticks. His arms are raised above its head, fingers outstretched to the sky as if asking the sun to evaporate water from the ocean to turn it into clouds, so that the rain can once more nourish the land.

Santi Ikto was built in collaboration with local community volunteers and created from recycled scrap wood, old pallets, twigs, and debris.
