ABOUT THE ART
The Twelve Apostles are limestone pillars off the southern Victorian coastline, about 275km from Melbourne.
There are not actually twelve apostles anymore, as several have collapsed in recent decades. The current figure is eight. The constant action of the waves beating at the limestone pillars of the Twelve Apostles, over time, has resulted in weakening of the thinner foundations at the waterline. The weight above the waterline is sufficient to cause the collapse.
The formations were originally caused by erosion from the strong waves and the salt-laden winds of the Southern Ocean.
1922, the formation was known as the "Sow and Piglets", the "sow" being nearby Mutton-bird Island.
