Our artwork explores the Aboriginal soldiers who gave their lives for their country during WW1. As this year marks the centenary for the ANZACS, we recognise the contribution so many made to our history and Australia. Over 1000 Indigenous Australians fought in WW1 and many experienced equal treatment for the rst time in their lives. This relates to the theme homegrown heroes as we acknowledge the lost Indigenous that fought so that we could be free. We have acknowledged ‘country’ in the background and created a new coat of arms for these homegrown heroes.
