We are underway!
Thanks to Ricky Hiskins and Dave Edwards, our new art work – Stage 2 of the Tommy McRae Project by Waradgerie sculptor Lorraine Connelly-Northey – is edging closer to installation.
With patience and precision, Ricky and his crane moved the two heavy rocks into position. Once these have settled and weeds have been removed, final adjustments can be made for installation.
The work is her tribute to Tommy McRae (Yackadun) as a First Nations Elder, a provider for his family and a custodian of Country and culture.
It will, like his, invite us to imagine the traditional lifestyle of First Nations people in this tranquil and special place of remnant vegetation.
