See all 2019 brains in the pond at Nathan Phillips Square in July!
This work pays homage to the power of the female mind and body; their miraculous, transformative nature, strength, resilience and power. It emphasizes the importance of female mental health, and how social issues affect our brains and self-care as women. We learn to compartmentalize our feelings and sometimes painful experiences to get through life. Through an orchestrated colour palette, the design aims to elevate the minds of all individuals, still focusing on celebrating the warrior, and the power and beauty of the female spirit.
