‘The Friendship Bench’ is not only a functional bench, but also an interactive contemporary sculpture from world-renowned public artists, Gillie and Marc. Incorporating their iconic characters Rabbitwoman and Dogman, you are invited to take a seat between them, inspiring conversations between friends, family, and even strangers! Rabbitwoman and Dogman tell the autobiographical tale of two opposites coming together to become best friends and soul mates. As unlikely animal kingdom companions, the Rabbit and the Dog stand for diversity and acceptance through love.
‘The Friendship Bench’ is a way of celebrating these differences rather than retreating in fear and division. Through ‘The Friendship Bench’, you are given the opportunity to take a moment and open yourself up to another with love and friendship, two of the most important things in the world. ‘The Friendship Bench’ is the chance to become Rabbitwoman and Dogman's friends, to make new friends, or just to take a photo to remember friendships.

Early Morning Coffee is a three-metre tall sculpture of Dogman and Rabbitwoman peacefully enjoying their morning coffee. The artwork was first unveiled in the ritzy Sydney suburb of Double Bay where it wowed passersby for two years. School children would run past and laugh at their exposed genitals, or literally climb up on to them. Gillie and Marc are regulars at Double Bay and know that a good cup of a coffee and dining al fresco is a huge part of the neighbourhood’s culture. So they created an artwork that beautifully enhances this outdoorsy, modern lifestyle and community.
