The Faces of the Community artworks were displayed on the Cockburn Central Station tower from 2006 to 2019, when they were removed due to maintenance issues. In December 2019 the community voted on what they would like to see installed in their place, with a 43 per cent majority opting for a new piece of artwork.

An open tender asked Western Australian artists to address themes suggested by the community including: Aboriginal culture and history, native fauna or flora, and local landscapes. Three artists were then shortlisted to develop a concept design.
