Original Aboriginal Artwork by Uncle Jim Simon
James P. Simon is a proud Wiradjuri–Biripi man, born in Wellington NSW and he grew up around Newtown and Redfern in Sydney. James is a life-long artist, largely self-taught, who has developed his own distinctive style, mostly painting in oils. His inspirations include artists such as Picasso, Tom Roberts, Salvador Dali and Albert Namatjira. James has an extensive list of group and solo exhibitions, commissions and publications and his work is found in many collections, both locally in Australia and abroad overseas.
The artwork is titled Where Mountain and River Meet. It's about how the mountains symbolise constancy, eternity, firmness and stillness. The river represents life source. For us to pay attention and understand when it is time to slow down and overcome our limits. There is a moment to take a break, a moment to move forward and a moment to change path for us to connect with ourselves and those around us.
Uncle Jim has painted and donated this iconic piece just for Friday’s event. It is a unique piece of art and you could be lucky owner of this artwork by placing your best bids at the event.
Cameron Murray’s International Record-equaling Boots
Rabbitohs captain and Australian international, Cameron Murray, recently equaled a 55-year-old try scoring record held by another South Sydney lock, Ron Coote, when he scored six tries for Australia in six consecutive Test matches as a forward.
Coote set the record in 1968, and 55 years later, Murray equaled the effort last Saturday against the New Zealand Kiwis in Melbourne.
These are the hand-signed boots that Murray wore in that Test match and scored the record-equaling try, and they could be yours by bidding at the event on Friday.
Additionally, Murray will wear the same boots in this weekend’s Pacific Championship Grand Final against the Kiwis, and if he manages to score another try, he will break the record fellow Rabbitoh Coote.
These are a one-of-a-kind signed item, an important piece of Rabbitohs and Australian sporting memorabilia, and they could be yours by bidding at Friday’s lunch event!
