  Looking to the forecourt mosaic
by balhannah

Located infront of New parliament house, is a large mosaic.

It is based on a Central Desert dot-style painting done by a leading Aboriginal artist from the Papunya community of the Northern Territory.
The mosaic is made up of approximately 90,000 hand-guillotined granite pieces in seven different colours and represents a Possum and Wallaby Dreaming.
Shallow running water complements the scene.
