Ornament - Gnome, Marysville, 7 Feb 2009 (Bushfire Damaged) Reg. No: HT 23721
- Burnt cast-concrete ornament male gnome. Found in the remains of Lynne Stone's home, destroyed at Marysville by the Murrindindi Bushfire on 7 February, 2009.
This is part of the Victorian Bushfires Collection, which includes an interview with Lynne Stone and other fire affected artefacts from their property.
- Fire-damaged cast-cement male gnome statue. He has a beard, and his right hand is raised to his ear, as if trying to hear something. On his head is a pointed hat and on his feet are clog-style shoes. Original surface finish is gone but the crackling effect suggests paint. Ash and other debris is attached to the surface.
