Our artwork represents Indigenous heroes and how they are “homegrown”. Our artwork relates to Homegrown Heroes by showing Eddie Mabo and Vincent Lingiari emerging from a vegetable patch as they are “homegrown heroes”. They are heroes because they fought long and hard for their rights and lands. It shows that Indigenous Australians can make a big difference. To be a hero, you don’t need a cape, just a bit of love, and most importantly, courage.
