The Ned Kelly black-singlet figure hiding behind a large mask represents Nature Under Siege - the mask a classic vernacular motif, the black singlet man of the land perhaps not engaged behind the bucket mask, watched by the male-female couple below. The attachments suggest op-shopping, and recycling, a life more sustainable.
