As a global corporate citizen, it is our privilege to support the communities we live and work in. We celebrate the diversity of cultures that comprise our world class organisation, a community of experts in one unique integrated family that drives our success. We are delighted to reflect this passion by showcasing the skills of local indigenous artist, Beverley Egan, a proud Yamatji woman.
This artwork supports our second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan, and our commitment to realising real change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
In this painting, Beverley depicts women in the Murchison River gathering around the Waterholes (centre of the piece). These informal gatherings were often used to educate the younger girls on their roles and responsibilities. These meetings also signified coming together, unity and a time to share.
The surrounding elements depict the nearby streams where emus would search for water. The symbolism of the emu signifies good luck and providence, and displayed here, it is intended to bring good fortune to the those who behold and enjoy the artwork.
We'd love to hear from you
