Thanks Aussiejets, that’s a beautiful Qantas 787. Aboriginal art is fascinating to me and I like to buy a bit when I visit Australia, it makes for very pleasant memories of great trips to a great country.

A bit underwhelming that only the rear is painted. Looks a bit "half-ar**d".

Paint it all!

You are jumping off the blocks way too early. Wait for the whistle matey I am sure you will be impressed. If you look at www.balarinji.com.au website on this subject "gallery" the front end is now masked and underway in Boeing's Paint Shop

Cheers Steve

You are welcome Dooltd & thank you chunky monkey for the twitter photo

This is off the Qantas.com.au The media room page

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the striking artwork is intended to encourage more people to explore the Indigenous elements that form part of ‘the Spirit of Australia’.
“As the national carrier we’re thrilled to showcase another piece of Indigenous culture on one of our aircraft, and to reiterate our ongoing commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
“It’s a beautiful, bold artwork and so we hope it catches people’s eye and sparks a conversation about our country’s dynamic Indigenous culture,” said Mr. Joyce.
For only the second time in Qantas’ history the iconic flying kangaroo on the aircraft has been changed to form part of the design, with the airline’s trademark red tail colour altered to match the earthy red tones and white dots of Emily’s artwork.
Managing Director of Balarinji Ros Moriarty said the design studio was honoured to continue its 20-year partnership with Qantas to support the place of Aboriginal design in Australia’s global identity.
“It’s been a privilege to work with the brilliant imagery of the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye to create the airline’s fifth iconic Indigenous flying art aircraft. Emily was an extraordinary artist who is revered around the world.
“Born in 1910, she began painting only in later life, completing more than 3000 exceptional works up until her death at 86 years of age. Her work embodies her cultural and spiritual connections to her country,” said Ms. Moriarty.
The aircraft will fly direct for approximately 15 hours from the Boeing factory in Seattle to touch down in Alice Springs on 2 March 2018 where it will be welcomed by Emily’s family.
Registered as VH-ZND, the aircraft will then fly to Sydney and Melbourne for crew familiarisation flights on Qantas’ domestic network before it enters service on international routes from late March. This is the fourth Dreamliner to enter the Qantas fleet, following the arrival of Great Southern Land, Waltzing Matilda and Quokka.
For more information click here (opens in new window), or view our gallery.
*Emily Kame Kngwarreye (pron. Emily Karma Nung-war-ray).
KEY FACTS
  • The livery based on Emily’s Yam Dreaming artwork took:
    • A team of more than 60 graphic designers, engineers and painters at Boeing’s Seattle facility worked with Balarinji to install the design onto the aircraft, taking more than ten days to complete.
    • There are close to 5000 dots on the aircraft.
  • Emily Kame Kngwarreye will be the second flying art aircraft currently in service alongside a B737-800, named Mendoowoorrji.
  • Qantas has worked with Indigenous owned design studio Balarinji (opens in new window) for more than two decades on aircraft livery projects and other design work, including the Peter Morrissey uniform of 2003.
  • The original Yam Dreaming artwork is currently located at Campbelltown Arts Centre in New South Wales.
  • Five Qantas aircraft have been painted in Indigenous designs, with Wunala Dreaming carried on two separate aircraft – click here for more information.
  • Qantas has a long-term commitment to reconciliation and the promotion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and economic development. Since the mid-1990s, Qantas has actively promoted the employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and celebrated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture through unique customer experiences, including the Flying Art Series.
  • Qantas is committed to ethical and transparent sourcing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art and is proud to be a supporter of the Indigenous Art Code.

Close to 5000 spots......... I wonder who is going to be sad enough to count said spots on the model and complain about spot placement and quantity.

Oh I won’t buy this, it’s only got close to 4500 spots and some spots are more like blobs!!!!!
