LYNDELL BROWN and CHARLES GREEN have designed a major tapestry for the new Sir John Monash Centre (SJMC) in France.

The tapestry, woven by the Australian Tapestry Workshop, will provide a lasting legacy in perpetuity commemorating the 46,000 Australian lives lostin the battles of the Western Front in World War 1 and commemorate the Centenary of ANZAC. 

According to the artists, the tapestry aims to "evoke the soldiers’ pathway from home to the Front, and emphasizes the incongruity between the Australia that they imagined as they journeyed further and further towards the Front.

Morning Star will be will be unveiled at the opening of the SJMC on ANZAC day in 2018.
