NEW CHILDREN'S COURT, SURREY HILLS, SYDNEY 

Austral obtained the relevant permits and completed the associated excavations for the New Children's Court project. The findings included this boot that was discovered in the void behind a fireplace in the court complex. It is likely that this object was ritually hidden in the fireplace, copying a relatively common ritual first documented in the United Kingdom during the 16th Century. By hiding the shoe, it is suggested that this concealed object was part of a ritual designed to lure away evil and bring luck to those within that building.
