The Five Elements at Sunvale

One of the five Aboriginal hexagonal artworks that make up this work

These artworks at  Sunvale Community Park, Sunshine are a reflection of our community’s feedback to contain links to local Aboriginal history and culture within the park, which opened in 2018. Local Aboriginal artists Mandi Barton and Aunty Lee-Anne Clarke created the artworks, under the guidance of Wurundjeri Elders. The works represent the five universal elements of traditional Wurundjeri culture. Note: the images are of the original artwork and it is being restored after vandalism.  Read more on the Five Elements.


Brimbank Council Chambers' window mural

Bunjil the eagle featured in the mural on Chamber window

The artwork in the Brimbank Council Chambers aims to encompass aspects of the vibrancy, the beauty, the tangible and the intangible of Wurundjeri Culture. It incorporates the dominant designs of both Bunjil the eagle representing creation and Waa the crow representing protection. Soaring high and overlooking country and the people, their essence touching all things. The flowing designs of the gum leaf represent the spirit of ancestors flowing in the wind, welcoming and protecting all that live in this place. There are many leaves, representing the many generations coming and the work that is done today, towards the future. Read more about this work by Tom Day.
