Luna Bogong

Luna Bogong

Artist – Ruth Pigott

Design Description

The Luna moth has been inspired by moths that are native to England, and Aboriginal designs. Linking the moth to both the beginning of Amy Johnson’s travels and to her end destination. The Latin term Luna means Moon and the name Bogong means moth when translated from the Aboriginal language. So the design and name have origins in both countries.
