Mitchell woman’s ori­gin creation

The Western Star - - NEWS -

TO HON­OUR State of Ori­gin’s rich in­dige­nous his­tory, News Re­gional graphic artist Shan­nan Bishop, formerly from Mitchell, has designed a unique poster of to­day’s stars.

The poster fea­tures the seven in­dige­nous play­ers in­volved in the 2018 Ori­gin – La­trell Mitchell, Josh Addo-Carr, James Roberts and Ty­rone Peachey from the Blues and Dane Ga­gai, Will Cham­bers and Greg Inglis from the Ma­roons.

Miss Bishop is a proud Gung­gari woman who also has con­nec­tions to Wakka Wakka and Gubbi Gubbi land.

“I was in­spired to do this poster be­cause it com­bines three of my favourite things – my cul­ture, art and State of Ori­gin,” Miss Bishop said.

“The sym­bols I used for this art­work in­clude con­cen­tric cir­cles, wavy lines and straight lines. Con­cen­tric cir­cles rep­re­sent camp­sites, wa­ter­holes or a place of sig­nif­i­cance. Wavy lines rep­re­sent wa­ter or rain and straight lines rep­re­sent ways of trav­el­ling.”

Check out the art­work on pages 18 and 19 and tune into State of Ori­gin on Sun­day.
