This piece is called “Nurture” and is also located at the Queen Elizabeth II Family Centre. The mosaic was made by women from the Majura Women’s Group (a community based group for women at home with young children) under the direction of community artist Linda Davy and interns Amanda Bruhn and Helen Martin from the Canberra Institue of Arts. It was launched by Jon Stanhope on March 18, 2005 and was funded by artsACT.
The piece is a true mixed media project incorporating everything from ceramic and vitreous glass tile to lego, baby bootees and handmade tile which makes for really interesting viewing and texture. Although I was at first a little weirded out by the babies 😉 I really like this piece. It says alot about motherhood.
