Mural of the re-enactment of the First Fleet, White's Mine, Broken Hill, New South Wales Australia. All of Kevin White's art is done using crushed ores and minerals sourced in Broken Hill, and glued to the surface. This gives a very unique painting style. This large mural of the First Fleet re-enactment on Sydney Harbour is several metres long. If you've got the space - and it will take an impressive lounge room wall to accommodate it - and $45 000 it can be yours! The rest of the museum is a very sobering introduction to the hard life of the miners in the early days of mining at Broken Hill. Kevin White, the artist, worked in the mines for 26 years. June 2016.
