Songlines

This unique original cultural masterpiece, was offered to the Foundation by the artists … five prisoners from five Aboriginal language groups. It was produced for Family Day during NAIDOC Week in 2015 before being offered to the Foundation as a fundraiser.

The Wayne Weaver Foundation is offering just a few opportunities for you to own this stunning painting to install in your workplace foyer or office.

Songlines was offered in a limited ticket raffle which was drawn in November 2019.

Congratulations to the proud winning couple who have now installed it in their home in Brisbane
