...the River is the Giver of Life to everyone who lives in or visits our community Tamara Murray, Barkandji/Yorta Yorta

The artist

Tamara Murray, Barkandji/Yorta Yorta

I am a Barkandji woman on my Mum’s side and Yorta Yorta on my Dad’s side. I love living on Wiradjuri country – it keeps me strong in culture and connected with both the land and the people.

I believe that the River is the Giver of Life to everyone who lives in or visits our community.

The sculpture

Reconciliation Shield

The figure depicted is holding his hands in a position of submission. Enough is enough – we all need to walk together on this journey of reconciliation
