The screen fencing at The Reserve is currently being installed. The modular design has been laser cut to allow light to filter through.
The brief for the design noted that Willagee is an important Nyoongah creation site. The emu is significant in the dreaming for the area due to the fact that it was once a large emu breeding ground. The artwork highlights this history by featuring abstracted forms of emu feathers, eggs and leaves within the design. Willagee was named after Wilgee Lake with Wilgee being the Nyoongah word for red ochre. Clay from Lake Wilgee played an important role in Nyoongar culture as it was used to make colour for ceremonial body painting, of which red ochre was most highly sought. You can see that the artwork has a palette of earthy nature based colours.
