The man who once boasted that he stopped the boats, prime minister Scott Morrison, has a trophy of what appears to be an asylum-seeker vessel in his office, and now we finally know what it looks like.
In a New York Times profile earlier this week, columnist Maureen Dowd mentioned that Morrison had what she described as a "model" in the prime minister's office in parliament.
"His office features a model migrant boat bearing the proud declaration 'I Stopped These'" alongside a cabinet with a Jesus shrine, Dowd reported.
People began wondering, what did the boat look like? How long had he had it? Why had no one else reported on it?
Well, at least we now know what it looks like.
AAP's Lukas Coch captured a photo of the boat at an event in the PM's office related to a drought announcement, where those gathered included deputy prime minister, Michael McCormack; drought coordinator, major general Stephen Day; and drought envoy Barnaby Joyce.
Here is everyone there.
Morrison was the first immigration minister in the Abbott government and oversaw the implementation of "Operation Sovereign Borders", which involved secretive operations to stop boats carrying asylum-seekers from coming to Australia. Over 30 boats have attempted to get to Australia and been turned back since the policy was enacted.
The government has trumpeted its success in having almost no boats arrive in Australia, but the whole operation has been highly secretive. There have been reports that the Australian government paid people smugglers to take the boats back to Indonesia.
And there are still hundreds of asylum-seekers in detention on Nauru and Manus Island who have been told that they will never be resettled in Australia. Australia has one resettlement deal with the United States, but has yet to find a third party resettlement location for the remaining refugees who miss out.
Morrison told the Daily Telegraph that the trophy was a "kind gift from a friend" who lives in his electorate, and the trophy was given to him when he left the immigration portfolio.
BuzzFeed News has analysed Morrison's declarations of gifts and it appears that he hasn't declared the gift on the register of members' interest for either this term of parliament or the last term.
