  • Author's note: This poem describes a visit to artist Peter Indans' (1947-2011) bush studio in Central Queensland. It captures how history has impacted understanding of the landscape, and pays homage to Indans' work. The poem originated from collaboration between artists and writers. Indans' Cockscomb I (2007) depicting the steep cliffs of Gawula provides the artistic counterpart to this poem.
