An initiative by artist Orly Faya in partnership with local Mindjinbal man Gavin Ivey has produced some stunning images.

Orly says the idea was to ‘… creatively recognise the intrinsic connection between human and earth, specifically in acknowledgement of Australia’s first peoples, the diversity of country, as well as highlighting our shared responsibility to care for country.’

Orly says the first creation took place on December 7 last year at The Pinnacle in the Border Ranges.

‘We awoke at the crack of dawn and with a crew of five people we ventured on a five-hour return trip, to arrive at the tip of The Pinnacle.

‘They were Gavin, his partner Mohammed, Dianna Rivers of the Rainforest Project and filmmaker Sharon Shostak.

‘An extraordinary day took place that we will never forget, an honouring of our first people of Australia, a recognition of the spiritual depth that has been so long hidden beneath layers of Anglo culture.

‘This project requires funding and support to continue. If you are interested in supporting this initiative, please contact [email protected]
