NAIDOC 2021 - Sublimated Lanyards
Sublimated full colour (satin feel) lanyard printed 2 sides. Standard - swivel metal hook and breakaway fitting.
When you think about lanyards, you think about cords that carry identification cards for work or for school, which are hung around the neck. This is the primary use of the lanyard as we know it today. There are however other uses for the lanyard, apart from carrying your school, work ID, key holders, pen holders, phone holders, compass holders or even an emergency tool kit.
STORY BEHIND THE ART:
Heal Country - Illustrates the 2021 NAIDOC Theme. It reflects the importance of everyone coming together to acknowledge the longest surviving culture in the world and the Country which has been cared for since time immemorial. The artworks shows that we all need to care for Country and stop the destruction of our sacred sites, desecration of the land and pollution of our waterways. This has to happen soon to ensure the land and all its beauty and knowledge can be sustained for our future generations. The bottom of the painting with traditional symbols reflects the cultural knowledge that is held within the land itself and the importance of sharing this to heal Country and continue our culture and heritage. The deep reds, browns and earthy tones reflect the landscape with the blues illustrating our oceans and waterways. The centre circle shows community and everyone coming together from all ages and backgrounds to share knowledge, yarn and care for the land. By healing Country and working together it is not only our land that benefits but our spirit, culture and future are lifted. This positive change is shown with the pathways radiating at the top of the artwork which reflect hope and a journey forward which comes from working together as a respectful community to heal Country.
