When The Australian Governor-General Quentin Bryce visited the Vatican and met Pope Benedict she gave him a Indigenous painting and a Peter Gorring Document Boxfrom the Gallery. We are really proud that a gift from our Gallery was chosen to represent Australia on the international stage.
"In return for a gold medallion bearing his image, the Pope received an Indigenous painting and a document box from Bungendore, on the ACT border."
