Created by Biripi woman and artist Brittany Cochrane, “Living as One on Biripi Country” tells a story of the passing down of Aboriginal culture through generations.

The inner circles and dots represent Biripi ancestors who have passed on their culture and traditions. The upside down ‘U’ symbolises present elders who continue to rejuvenate Aboriginal culture and traditions.

The small circles around the ‘U’ are symbols of generations to come, following in the steps of their elders and ancestors to keep their culture alive and significant.

The dots flowing out from the centre represent the community living on Biripi Country, and are scattered to symbolise the wider community and the Biripi people as one. The outer circles symbolise Saltwater - a significant Biripi place.
