The Mural Wall

The Mural Wall was unveiled in August 2011 by the then Governor-General Quentin Bryce AC CVO. It represents a painting depicting the Holy Spirit in Our Land by the late renowned Elder, Lawman and painter of the Gija People (East Kimberly), Hector Jandany. His original painting is in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra. The proposal to represent it in ceramic tiles on this Wall was enthusiastically approved by the painter during his lifetime. It has been achieved by Mosaics by Morrissey. This Mural Wall wonderfully bridges Indigenous and Christian spirituality through an interpretation of life of the Spirit in the land and the lives of its people. It is one of the two iconic spiritual symbols so far erected on the site. To read the Governor-General's speech from the unveiling of the Mural Wall, click here.
