Indigenous round artwork

November 3, 2023 | Townsville Fire news

The Townsville Fire is priviledged  to wear their one of a kind designed indigenous round uniform this weekend when taking on the Bendigo Spirit in game one of the WNBL season.

Designed by artist Chris Gray, from Chris Deadly Art

The story behind this art piece is focused on connection, journey and respect.

The yarning circles  are to identify all the players, their families, the club staff, the members, and the Townsville community coming together to support the Townsville Fire.

The connection symbols flowing through the design shows that we are all connected on this journey together.

The circle dotart is the Townsville Fire colours which I also like to use in my art to remember the dreamtime stories, culture, bloodlines, and the connection we have to land, sea and sky.

The yarning circle on its own is to respectfully acknowledge our ancestors who walked on the lands before us, and the Townsville Fire would like to acknowledge all the traditional custodians lands as we live, work, and play on.
