THE colourful mosaic on the Fisherman’s Hollow amenities block in Yanchep has been restored thus completing refurbishment works on the building.

Made up of thousands of small tiles, the 4.8m by 1.2m artwork takes a prominent position on the northern side of the amenities block.

The mosaic’s original artist, Danka Scholtz von Lorenz, was commissioned by the City of Wanneroo to undertake the restoration, returning the vibrant artwork to a pristine state.

The mosaic intricately depicts life at Fisherman’s Hollow, showcasing the history of the area and highlighting the surrounding beach, local wildlife and coastal activities.

Ebonee Lynch of Darlington and her daughter Anabelle visited Fishermen’s Hollow on Sunday, March 19.

Mrs Lynch and other visitors to Fishermen’s Hollow have told Yanchep News Online they would have appreciated some information about the mosaic to help them understand the history of the area.

Locating the mosaic in a more visible position was also raised at the Two Rocks Yanchep Resident’s Association meeting on Monday, February 27.
