Maheno painting created especially for Anzac Day
Owen Pointon’s “Dingoes Guard the wreck has been featured in the Fraser Coast Chronicle:
A PAINTING by a renowned artist, titled Dingoes Guard the Wreck, is featured in a special Anzac Day display at Happy Valley Resort on Fraser Island.
Wildlife artist Owen Pointon said the painting was created especially for Anzac Day.
“The ship featured is the S.S. Maheno, which was actually a hospital ship for the New Zealand Armed Forces at Gallipoli,” Mr Pointon said.
“Plus, of course, the Fraser Island dingoes are symbolic of the island.
“They’re magnificent creatures.”
Owen Pointon’s work will be on regular display at the Visitors Centre from now on.
