Yarnteen Yamuloong Awaba – All Come Together on Lake Macquarie
The imagery acknowledges the Awabakal people as the traditional custodians of the land and highlights a campsite as a meeting place for people through the generations.
Central to the design is a gathering circle encompassed by traditional people symbols U, reflecting gathering together at the campsite. The songlines backdrop shows an engraved campsite circle under the red ochre people symbol, depicting the Awabakal people and acknowledging their traditional custodianship of the land.
Water imagery and songlines highlight Lake Macquarie, while middens (discarded shell over 1,000s of years feasting around our waterways) are captured across the bottom on the artwork. Aboriginal people are connected to water, it is protected through lore and gives life to all.
