this one word is famous in Sydney as it was chalked on the street for 37 continous years by one person. this image on the tee shirt was taken from a church billboard on Broadway that is also quite famous for its pithy oneliners that get writen up on the billboard out the front…. the church is St Barnabas and it was recently burnt down and the grafittist was Arthur Stace and he has been dead since 1967… so this shirt is a momento mori to them both…

    How long do you have to pay the royalties for?

  • hi lawford…. yes tricky one that hey…. this was taken from a photo I shot from the billboard outside st barnabas church just after it had been burnt down…. both word….eternity and this particular church have become real sydney icons in there own ways and to find them together ….even in this small way was just to good to pass up…. I’ve cropped the word out and fiddled with it…… but still the vexed question …..copyright and all that….. mind you I’d be happy to pass on any profit from sales of this shirt to the church rebuilding fund…. if that ever came to be that is…… the word itself is part of the sydney lexicon now even though its not 50 years from arthur stace’s death…. it was used on the bridge one nye not so long ago I think….. any way….. its all in fun and I’ve given full credit to the creator of the legend of the word…… and I don’t imagine it will sell at least not much or many so I don’t really think it will be a big problem…….:)

    What I meant was – most royalty contracts are for 1 year with an option. But I thought this one may have to go on for an eternity…..
    I was aware of theis Sydney legend and thought it a facinating story. Often wondered why he did it.

  • thanks Lawford… the story of the church is just as interesting although not as long lasting….. the church is right on Broadway and directly across the road is a pub and for year the priest and the publican would exhange pithy and often very witty barbs and little friendly slaps with each other… the priest on the billboard outside the church that faced the pub and the publican on the chalkboard that he had specially made to face the church across the eight or what ever lanes of full on traffic at that incrediblly busy intersection. People like me just used to love the exchange between these two very clever and diametrically opposed men…. it was never nasty and really was a contest between them….. and often the barbs would make the paper if there had been a pariculary good couple of salvos and reply’s….. eventually the publican’s daughter got married and yes you guess it…. at the church across the street….. a real Sydney story.

    Anyway about a year ago the church was totally burnt down and this one word is written up on the billboard…. and I find it really appropriate somehow…. maybe I should post the damned photo although without the story its a pretty ordinary image….. may be you could write the story up for me?

    It was used for New Years Eve on the Harbour bridge in the year 2000 for the millenium and a somewhat defining or summing up of the soul of Sydney… :-) It is a collective ownership and I think that Arthur Stace would be so very happy for the legend to live on and on… we should all write this on our footpaths in chalk everywhere we go… and if not that… then wear it on our t-shirts!!! We should all buy one of Juilee’s fantastic t-shirts!

  • Hey thanks heaps melodious…. that is just so great……. wonderful and yes its such a great story…. arthur stace an amazing guy…its was his own private mission to make us all think about life and what is beyond…. incredible….. the shirt really is to honour his memory and his life’s work …. so glad you know what I’m on about here…… :)

    For someone who is so concern about aboriginal rights and using dots in somebody else artwork you should be ashamed of yourself and stop spamming my work.

  • hey vitbich……I don’t steal aboriginal peoples art work and pass it off as my own original works of art for private profit……the image above is taken from one of my many many photos …….. all of which are 100% original………

    Hey Juilee, before accusing someone let’s remember you took church logo and selling it as your artwork for profit. You did not create this logo it has a copyright owner Eternity Christian Church. I do not think you have a written permission to use it for profit. Shame on you.

  • vitbich….you are a very stupid person….. this is not a church logo nor is the church called the Eternity Christian Church…. it’s called St Barnabas and is located on Broadway in Sydney. After the church recently burnt down to the ground with only the sign at the front left, the priest wrote one word one on this billboard and that word was Eternity. This one word is a message of hope and faith and comfort to all and is particular to no one person or group of people. The word which is a common word in the english language also has a connatation and an association with one person, Arthur Stace who had chalked the word on the footpath for 50 years around Sydney. He died with out issue and the legacy of this single word and it’s imputed meaning passed into the common domain. It was used by the state in celebrating the 2000 NYE celebrations in Sydney and as such usage by for example this particular church or the state goverment further the concept of it being in the common domain. The design above is a tiny section of an original photograph taken by myself as you can see from the framing that contains it.

    You on the other hand have blatently and delibrately stolen tribal designs from a whole race that has already had much stolen from it and trivialzed and corrupted them for your personal profit. You have had several Aborigianal artists who are members of this site contact you and ask you politely to stop as well as other people who are concerned about this but have chosen to ignore all of them which shows a breathtaking arragance as well as a real lack of originality in that you…. allegedly a designer…. can’t come up with any thing original but need to rip off others and use once scared and meaningful tibal totems to make work to sell. Very very sad indeed.

  • once again you are wrong….St Barnabas on Broadway is not the Eternity church in Camperdown…. different suburbs and different churches and how come you are not answering the question about you you are ripping off Aboriginal art and pretending its your own ???
