As part of my work with the bushfires, I have been helping collect photos from the local residents for a mural to showcase Toolangi and Castella during the fires and the regrowth and regeneration that have occurred since, as well as preparing for the exhibition. On 13th March the mural was unveiled to the community and a exhibition of the photos used to create the finished artwork were displayed. The artist, Janet Hayes has cleverly incorporated many images within the lyrebirds plumage and also blended several together to provide the backdrop. This photo really doesn't do it justice, there are so many things to see that each time you look at it you notice something new. The mural is approx 2.5 metres X 2 metres

It really is beautiful, Kerry. Sorry I couldn't get to the exhibition; I will come up to have a look at the mural when it's safely hung.
