This painting shows staff within a hospital working together. The painting represents the bridging of barriers between people, the many departments and buildings on the Nepean Hospital site. The painting contains an image of a tortoise: the totem of Edna's family.
The painting shown on this card is one of three works painted by staff of Nepean Hospital as part of a 'Reconciliation at Work' project. It demonstrates the beauty of what can be achieved when Aboriginal and non Aboriginal people work together for Reconciliation.
The development of three paintings were guided and supported by Local Aboriginal artists Edna Mariong Watson; Ian Bundeluk Watson and Leanne Mulgo Wright, direct descendants of Darug tribal elders Gombeeree (born in 1740) and his son Yarramundi (born in 1760), and 'Chief' Kevin Pierpoint.
The painting and imaged within the painting are not to be reproduced without permission.
