Last week Lismore artist Lisa Simone (pictured) unveiled a brand new sculpture for the gingko herb garden at Southern Cross Universitys School of Naturopathy.
The work, entitled Healing Hands, was the culmination of three years work and was her first-ever sculpture.
She said she always felt like she was sculpting whenever she did a painting so the whole process came very naturally.
Theres a great connection between art, creativity and healing and hands being something we use to heal with, she said. It represents part of the philosophy of naturopathy.
