Description

The northern Tasmanian town of Sheffield is known as the ‘Town of Murals’ due to the large number of publicly displayed artworks in its streets, especially on walls. Although the majority of the artworks are about Tasmanian, especially local, history, this particular example shows a warrior whose appearance suggests that he is from the Highlands of Scotland. He wears a tartan kilt with a sporran and is armed with a sword and a round shield. He may have been deemed a suitable subject for the town as it is close to a region known as the Highlands of Tasmania, and it is possibly Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair pictured behind the warrior.
