The Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, Mal Brough, put out a media release this morning announcing that more “stone artworks” (rocks) had been added to Reconciliation Place this morning.
“The stones, from Wilcannia, have engraved quotes about reconciliation from five eminent Indigenous Australians – Wenton Rubunja, Robert Lee, Ruby Hammond, Bill Neidjie and Gatjil Djerrkura.”
Unlike previous efforts at Reconciliation Place this one doesn’t seem to have upset anyone and when I went downt ehre to take a photo there were significant numbers of pleased looking indigenous folk around.
And I have to say I think it looks better than the contrived chunks of perspex and steel that dot reconciliation place at the moment.
