Mitchell woman’s origin creation
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.”
