2020 SWELL ARTWORK – The Good Ship Awareness, Dragons Abreast
Sailing through our busy lives we can sometime be oblivious to health issues, until a diagnoses of Breast Cancer rocks our boat. The Good Ship Awareness and her over sized bra is a reminder to all women to be vigilant and do regular checks.
SWELL Kids Artist Statement – The Good Ship Awareness, Dragons Abreast
Dragon boat racing is excellent for women who have had breast cancer. Many have had to undergo surgery to remove a breast, which is represented by the mermaid and the sails of the boat which is shaped like a bra. During a race a drum is used to keep the paddlers in time.
Come and see for yourself at SWELL Sculpture Festival, Pacific Parade, Currumbin 11-20 September.
