"STARS SWEETHEARTS" - Reconciliation Art Project supported by Roma Mitchell Reconciliation and Human Rights - Portrait of Ngarrindjeri Elder of Meningie seen below in 138KB JPEG file "2000ArchibaldEntry-Portrait.jpg" with artist's consent - it was entered for exhibition in 2000 Archibald Prize by local artist Mary Kastanos.

"STARS Sweethearts" (Setting The Aboriginal Record Straight) is a portrait of Elder Daisy M. Brown Rankine, Ngarrindjeri Elder of Meningie, South Australia, Convenor: Lake Albert Ngori (pelican) Meiwi Sub-Committee. Aunty Daisy is adorned with broaches: the golden pelican (her natji: companion/totem); Meiwi* flag; International Year of the Older Persons (a reminder to respect our elders); plus the Reconciliation emblems. The background waters depict the River Murray at Wellington, where her great grandparents lived. The pelicans, seagulls and shag are some of the bird life of the area. Mary Kastanos: Artist "As an Australian born Greek (my mother's people were refugees from Smyrna, my father a Greek Cypriot), I knew little about this land we call Australia, or its Indigenous inhabitants. In understanding about caring and sharing for each other and the land, I'm learning about reciprocity in living."(Meiwi Flag in background of photograph) .

*Meiwi means: "Life to all Living Things, Creatures Great and Small" Elder Daisy M. Brown/Rankine.
