A PICTURESQUE water tower is now gracing the skyline at Milbrulong in the eastern NSW.
Lockhart Shire general manager Peter Veneris and artist Scott Nagy captured these images to share with Eastern Riverina Chronicle readers.
Mr Veneris said it had been a pleasure to work on the project in collaboration with Riverina Water.
He said the mural was completed over a six-day period.
"It created much interest among Milbrulong residents and others passing through the village," Mr Veneris said.
"The promotional benefits of the project are already obvious with the shire's community Facebook page receiving more than 60,000 hits in the past wee, and while the mural was being painted," he said.
The mural, featuring a rosella, pays homage to the village name and the Wiradjuri heritage, Milbrulong being the Wiradjuri work for rosella, and will complement the Lockhart Water Tower mural which was completed in 2018 also with Riverina Water's support.
The mural is part of a broader project which aims to create a vibrant community area through three key elements - art, nature and heritage. It is proposed to link the creative mural on the Water Tower with a small park area, a rosella walk with nesting boxes, picnic tables and heritage panels.
The artists said they were pleased to be back in Lockhart Shire for another mural project and really appreciated the hospitality shown to them by Milbrulong residents."
