*AILA Connection to Country Reconciliation Action Plan Artwork, Paul Herzich “The artwork illustrates the 65,000 years or so of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as stars above Country. Each white star represents one century, equating to 650 centuries or 65,000 years. The two blue stars represents the two or so centuries of non-indigenous cultures.”
