Qantas Unveils Latest Flying Art

Qantas has unveiled a new 737-800 aircraft featuring an indigenous art livery. The aircraft is the fourth aircraft in Qantas’ flying art series in partnership with Australian designers Balarinji. The partnership, which began in 1994 with the “Wunala Dreaming” design on a 747 aircraft, is inspired by the work of late West Australian Aboriginal painter, Paddy Bedford. The latest livery is an interpretation of the 2005 painting “Medicine Pocket” which captures the essence of Mendoowoorrji, Bedford’s mother’s country in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. The aircraft itself has been named Mendoowoorrji in honour of this.
