Mirra-Winni Gaze of Brunswick Heads received Open 1st Prize $3,000 with her work The Fish Trap and the Pot, made from woven grasses and a clay pot. Mirra-Winni said the work is ‘Dedicated to the stolen generations. To all the little children taken from their parents. To the mothers and fathers. The pot represents strength and purity. The fish trap represents an ancient way of life living close to nature’.
And the winner is … Savannah Dreaming – Nurtured Child by Mirri-Winni Gaze from Brunswick Heads.
