A bird’s-eye view

Evans Rd & Tarragindi Rd, Salisbury QLD
This artwork is about a native rainbow lorikeet flying high in the sky above her homeland of Toohey Forest and beyond. The artwork is about the mother’s journey in caring for her three chicks each and every day. It is also about the mother’s quest to find grace in the bumps and falls that are a natural part of her chicks learning to fly. While in flight, with an expansive view of her homeland, the mother realises she already has all the courage required to stay the course – as she was once the bird that dared to fall. The artwork details local landmarks and encourages the public to take a moment to visit Pegg’s lookout for a bird’s-eye view of the area.
