In its short history, the Isa St Bridge mine sculpture has proven to be a lot more than just statue.
Erected in December the miner and child have already survived bush fires, floods and now pandemics.
The yarn bombing is expected to continue leading up to domestic violence prevention month (May).
However big or small, its quirky actions like placing face masks on the sculpture that bring a smile to people's faces during adversity and show just how strong Mount Isa's culture is.
The sculpture was created by Aramac's Scrapmetalsheila Milynda Rogers, using steel and rubble from the old bridge.
It depicts a child and miner from the 1930's looking over to the mine - a nod to children who walked their fathers to work, and again greet them in the evening.
Who knows what stories our sculpture will tell in the future, one thing that's assured is that what ever they are about, the town will get through it together, just like the father and child.
