Traffic Light Box Painting, for Mary
Battery Point, Hobart Tasmania.
Sandy Bay Road and St Georges Terrace

From 1895 to 1921 Mary Roberts ran a private sanctuary at Battery Point, Hobart, that included caring for Tasmanian Devils and Thylacines. Mary was a member of many social groups and a pioneer of her time. She presented her studies of the Tasmanian Devil to a scientific paper "Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London' in 1915. These achievements were difficult for women at the time.
Thank you to the people of Battery Point for the support while working on-site.
