At the top of Sundown Hill, twelve sandstone sculptures stand against the vivid sunsets of the Living Desert Sanctuary.

These iconic symbols of the Australian Outback were created by twelve different artists from around the world. Sculptors from Georgia, Mexico, Syria, Bathhurst Island and Australia contributed to the sculpture symposium, using a total of 53 tons of sandstone between them. The project was directed and organized in 1993 by artist Lawrence Beck.
