Heritage Mourning

Lytton Rd & Heath St & Heidelberg St, East Brisbane QLD
Here our traditional Queenslander homes are nestled between large yellow Moreton Bay Fig trees that are found along the banks of the Brisbane River. Here they are painted yellow to symbolize a sunny welcome and Flying Foxes & Magpie Larks dwell in their trunks and branches. When trees are marked for “removal” they are usually tied with a ribbon of sorts, but here they are marked with a black lace arm band to mourn their loss Etc. The magpie larks cling to white picket fence posts and the bats lay exposed in the leafless branches. _x000D_ Not only are we losing too many of our iconic Queenslander homes to development, but our critters are losing their habitat too.
