Painted by Matt Adnate, who is known for his murals of Indigenous children, it took 5 days to paint this mural. The artist says he spends a lot of time painting the eyes, with a lot of detail and power to enable them to communicate.
Jenny Munro, is the founder of the Redfern Aboriginal tent embassy who has been fighting for Aboriginal housing rights for over 40 years.

As Canadians and Australians we probably have many things in common. One of them is that we have not treated our First Nations people well.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your visit David. I have to agree, many things were done pretty badly!Delete
Esse tromp l’oeil está muito bem concebido.ReplyDelete
Parece que aí, tal como aqui, o povo aborígene continua a lutar pelos seus direitos.
Obrigada Catarina. E verdade, sempre a lutar.Delete
Fantástico este belo mural.ReplyDelete
Um abraço e bom Domingo.

An impressive mural, and great to see artist and subject together. She must feel honouredReplyDelete
Thanks Debbie, I'm sure it's a great honour to have your face on the big screen and I'm sure it would bring more attention to her cause.Delete
This one is quite amazing. I've photographed it for my blog too.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jim. Sorry, bound to repeat a few on my travels.Delete
A street art a ser reconhecida e aplicada em espaços nobres.ReplyDelete
Acredite que me deixa muito feliz.
Bjs, boa semana
Obrigada Pedro, uma boa semana para si tambem.Delete
This is done with incredible precision and SO realistic! The eyes are done in the way he intended to.
Thanks Mariette, I wish I had taken a close up of the eyes, but they do look great.Delete
Very, very life-like, amazing, like a photograph, actually!ReplyDelete
With that serious look she´s quite a reminder of the past.
Thanks Iris, hope she brings some supporters to her cause.Delete
It could have been a boring portrait picture but the 'framing' makes it much more appealing. It must have been a very ugly and bare wall before it was painted.ReplyDelete
I agree Andrew, I think those bright splashes of colour around the face make all the difference and bring the portrait to life.Delete
I admire the artist for this huge mural.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your visit Traudel.Delete
Great portrait as mural. I like it.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
This was so impressive, it could have been a photograph. Wonderful art and fabulous artist. I bet you were thrilled when you found this. Looks like your Monday Murals are doing well, too.ReplyDelete
Thanks Elizabeth. I'm having fun looking for murals and having other bloggers participating.Delete
You just reminded me I never posted a mural on the side of our hotel in Berlin!ReplyDelete
A good reminder then Jackie, looking forward to it.Delete
Fine post, SamiReplyDelete
Oh wow this is fantastic Sami, such a strong image! Can't believe it only took five days. He does do eyes so realistically, there's a lot of experience and wisdom in those eyes!ReplyDelete
I don't know how these artists paint so quickly!Delete
The eyes are very well done.

It is wonderful, Sami! He is a real talent!ReplyDelete
I agree, a very talented artist Pat.Delete
An amazing mural, well done!ReplyDelete
Que interessante homenagem! Sensibilizou-me a atenção ao indígena que na verdade é o Senhor dono do solo pátrio. Aqui do lado de minha casa existe um novo hotel também. Não sabia que ele pertence a grande rede hoteleira. Deve ser francês, mas com nome português? Será brasileiro? Vou procurar saber. Grande abraço. Laerte.ReplyDelete
Obrigada pela visita Laerte.Delete
Acabei de procurar, o Novotel e uma rede com cerca de 400 hoteis e os headquarter sao em Franca.
This is so good.
Thanks for the additional information too.
All the best Jan
