In 2012, Gillie and Marc created a life-sized sculpture The Travellers Have Arrived to be featured in the Sculpture By the Sea exhibition in Sydney’s Bondi Beach. Gillie and Marc see Bondi as a pilgrimage where backpackers from around the world flock to call it home. In this artwork, Dogman and Rabbitgirl were inspired by Mary and Joseph and this artwork represented Bondi as a modern-day Bethlehem. Gillie and Marc believe that good things come in small packages so they recreated this beautiful sculpture as the perfect way to enliven spaces such as bookcases, windowsills, or even a bathroom.

Gillie and Marc are best known for their iconic hybrid characters Dogman and Rabbitgirl who tell the autobiographical tale of two opposites coming together to become best friends and soulmates, proving everything is possible through love. Dogman and Rabbitgirl can be found in over 500 public collections and museums through 40 different countries across the globe including New York, London and Sydney.
