During the construction of the F3 freeway, a number of Aboriginal engraving sites were destroyed or relocated. One of these sites was partly re-located to the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden. Three slabs of rocks were moved from the site of the freeway, and lie in close proximity in the Wildflower Garden in St Ives.
One of the engravings is a single fish, which was originally part of a line of three fish.
A second slab of rock has an engraving of a man, who was also part of a series of six men. The slab has split down the middle.
The top part of the man’s torso shows the cracking of the slab around his head, and the feet of the man above him (which was not re-located, but has been lost).
Part of the man’s left leg has been lost.
The second man is on a separate rock slab; part of the figure is hard to make out, but many of the groves can still be seen.
