Artist's Statement

The Koala is an icon for threatened species everywhere. The design uses only Australian native plants such as the Waratah, Wattle, Everlasting Daisy, Gum blossums and the iconic Eucalyptus. The name of the design, "Carramar", is the Birpai name for "shade of trees" which is appropriate because that is where you will usually find Koalas.
