The Painting of Life by Mirka Mora
The Painting of Life, by renowned artist Mirka Mora, is a must-see. It is the largest of Mirka Mora's works on permanent public display in Queensland. It measures 5.7 metres across, and 6.1 metres in height. Brightly coloured, her unique style is seen in the animals, birds, patterns and designs. Take a close look at all the sections of the mural to see some of the history and stories of the Burdekin area. You may even find a mythical creature or two.
The painting was created on scaffolding in the foyer of the Burdekin Theatre in 1983. The progress was viewed by many people who came to watch. Upon completion of the Burdekin Library the following year, it was installed in its current location. On show in the Burdekin Library Ayr, you are invited to view the artwork during opening hours, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, and Saturday 9am to 1pm.
