This is a truly significant moment in Australia’s history – I congratulate everyone involved in bringing this stunning artwork to life.,
The history of Australia’s First Peoples has been missing from the public domain & through Eora Journey we’ve been working to address this.,
We were also joined by elders from our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community for this historic announcement.,
Governor David Hurley & I were proud to join the artist and curatorial adviser of the Eora Journey Hetti Perkins earlier today.,
bara is the Gadigal word for shell-hook –inspired by traditional fish hooks crafted & used by Gadigal women for thousands of generations.
