In 1957 the Sinozich family migrated from Croatia to Melbourne, Australia on board the Lloyd Triestino steamship NEPTUNIA. This painting is a reproduction of the family's passenger ticket and lists their names: husband and wife Eugen and Giorgina (Gina) Sinozich and their children, seven-year-old Vladimiro (known as Michael) and six-year-old Eugenia (known as Jenny). This is one of 14 paintings by the 73 year old artist Gina Sinozich documenting her personal experience as a Croatian migrant travelling to Australia.
