Ripples Mosaic

This mosaic was commissioned by the Rural City of Murray Bridge.

I worked with artist Lena Rigney, and consultated Ngarrindjeri Elders, to develop the designs which show the story of Ngurunderi, the great ancestral creator of the Ngarrindjeri. 

The nine circular panels were fabricated by a diverse range of community participants from around the Murray Bridge area, with the large panels and sculpture of Pondi fabricated by me, with the assistance of Ben Smith.

The artwork fits into what was once a water fountain, and shows Pondi (Murray Cod) forging a path through the landscape (thereby creating the Murray River) watched over by Ngurunderi.

The work was started in March 2011 and completed in July 2011.
