Final meeting of the Port Phillip Council 2008 to 2012

The final meeting of this Port Phillip Council was held in St Kilda this evening. The contribution of all councillors was acknowledged in generous speeches.
Often, when I have struggled to find the words for an argument or felt daunted by the difficulty of an issue, I have gazed at this painting on the northern wall of the Council Chamber and pondered its meaning. I believe the painting was commissioned at the time of Council amalgamations.  After eight years, it retains a mystery for me even though it is very evocative of this place. These are just two panels from the mural.
