Aboriginal artist Lena Nyadbi has been commissioned to create a major work inspired by her mother’s land in Dayiwul Country, WA, for the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris.  The result of a partnership struck between the Musée, the Australia Council and the Harold Mitchell foundation, 79 year old Nyadbi’s 700 square-metre black and white painting entitled ‘Dayiwul Lirmum (Barramundi Scales)’ is currently being installed on the Musée’s rooftop and will soon be viewable from both the Eiffel Tower and on Google Earth. The unveiling of ‘Dayiwul Lirmum’ on June 6th is set to coincide with the opening of a major new exhibition of Kimberley artists from the Warmun Art Centre at the Australian Embassy in Paris.
