Yemurraki mural
To share the language and the story of Kawir & Kuthun, a large mural was created using the artwork from the book.
The mural is 20 metres long and is located on the side of the Yarkuwa centre, near the corner of Junction and End Streets in Deniliquin.
The mural was supported by Regional Arts NSW through the NSW Government’s Country Arts Support Program.
