Recently I commissioned a steel artwork from Aboriginal Steel Art, that needed to be of cultural significance. It was to be presented to Aunty Lorraine McGee Sippel at the launch of my book 10 Hail Mary's,. that was held at Gleebooks, in Sydney. Wayne suggested the Murray Cod, as Aunty Lorraine is a Yorta Yorta woman, from the river based people of the central Murray region. Working to a very tight deadline Wayne produced a magnificent work of art, that had the audience gasping when it was presented to Aunty Lorraine. Thank you Wayne, I really appreciated you pulling out all stops to get this to me on time. I mention the Murray Cod and the artist who made it, every chance I get.
