This panel forms part of Block 13 of the New Zealand AIDS Memorial Quilt. This whole block is dedicated to Eve
From the stories folder that accompanies The Quilt to displays
The symbols on New Zealand and Australia represent the places where Eve lived - three years in Australia and eight and a half in New Zealand.
The ripples going out from New Zealand represent Eve’s message about HIV and AIDS going out to the rest of the world.
The dove flying towards Australia represents the peace that was able to go back to Gosford as the people apologised to Eve and her family for the hurt and prejudice in the first three years of Eve’s life. (Eve and her family came to New Zealand when she was shunned in her home town)
The large Angels represent the unseen Heavenly Realm watching on.
LOTS OF LOVE FROM
There are other panels for Eve, all on the same block as this one, made by her family, an aunt, uncle, and a cousin, cousin Lynette, Nana and Great Aunty Dianne, Eve’s friends, and Eve’s school class-mates)
If you knew Eve and wish to add your memories to this page, or wish to remember a loved one with a strong connection to New Zealand who has been lost to AIDS, you may do so on this page.
