Stockland Wetherill Park Community Wall in partnership with ACSYA

Stockland Wetherill Park Community Wall 

 

Stockland Wetherill Park is excited to exhibited and bring to life community art pieces and creative works from local schools and community groups. The intention of this exhibition space is to shine some light on the wonderful initiatives and programs running in our local community.

The creative works Exhibited on the Community Wall have been donated by the Assyrian Cultural and Social Youth Association Inc. Details of the association are as follows:

Assyrian Traditional Clothing

Assyrian traditional clothing varies across villages of the country now known as Iraq. Typically they feature lavish jewellery and head pieces for both men and women. The vibrant colours, blue, red, yellow, green and purple were significant in relation to status as they were predominately worn by the wealthy. 

 

Assyrian Warriors

This ancient culture originated approximately 4000 years ago. Their leaders included Kings and warriors who considered lion-hunting a sport, symbolic of the ruling monarch’s duty to protect and fight for his people. Pictured below are images of what these rulers would wear. You can read about the reliefs illustrating the sporting exploits of the kings at the community wall.
