NEW JERSEYS FOR TOYOTA COWBOYS IN 2012
The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys will play in new Indigenous and Heritage jerseys, as well as turn pink for the first time, in the 2012 NRL season.
The range of five jerseys for season 2012, from the Cowboys' official apparel partner ISC, will be unveiled at Dairy Farmers Stadium today.
Renowned artist Susan Peters Nampitjin has provided the eye-catching artwork for the Cowboys' new Indigenous jersey which the club will wear for the first time in the Close the Gap round home game against Manly in round 22.
Susan, who is a contemporary artist of the Walmajarri people, located in the Tanami desert of the south-east Kimberleys in Western Australia, was commissioned by the Cowboys to design the new jersey.
Predominantly white in colour, the jersey's artwork depicts the traditional Aboriginal and Torres Islander culture and lifestyle of hunting, gathering, dance, song and ceremonies.
It shows a rainbow serpent coming from the ocean and then weaving across the land creating the rivers and the mountains.
