Gikmai Kundun hails from Chimbu and came to Port Moresby in the early 1970’s enrolling at the National Arts
School. He was trained in various classical art mediums, but it was metal sculptures that attracted his imagination. His
distinctive style of work was first recognised in Papua New Guinea when he was commissioned to do sculpture work in the new Parliament House.
This is a complex piece of sculpture that represent ol lain bilong PNG (all the PNG people), moving together into the future. It is an aspirational piece of art full of hope. At the back is the Prime Minister the largest figure representing
leadership. All communities of people need leaders. It is a matter of finding and then supporting good leaders who can make real the vision of a better future.
