About the work

A collaboration between artists Adnate and Tom Day, this partnership brings together Adnate's fine art realist portraiture style and Day’s traditional linework style. The collaboration unites Day’s Aboriginal heritage in an ode to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurung people and continues Adnate's collaboration with Indigenous communities. The inspiration for the mural came from the aquifurs that flow below the city and the eels which migrate towards the Yarra River which can be seen illustrated throughout the design.

This mural reflects the Wurundjeri Woi Wurung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation on which Gills Alley presides.
