It's a painting of Labor's Linda Burney but to her and others it is much more.
The NSW federal MP was the first indigenous woman elected to the House of Representatives and now her portrait will hang in the halls of parliament.
"I am humbled because I am reminded that we all serve in this place," Ms Burney said at the unveiling on Wednesday.
"This is not just about a portrait of me, this is about those who have come before me and those who will come after.
"Young men and women from both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal backgrounds understand what that election means."
Ms Burney's portrait joins other paintings of significant firsts in Australia's parliament, including the first woman elected, Dame Enid Lyons, and the first indigenous man elected, Senator Neville Bonner.
Labor leader Bill Shorten said Ms Burney's journey to her historic election had been remarkable.
"Linda spent the first 10 years of her life here in Australia living as a non-citizen," he said.
"The fact it has taken 119 years to unveil a portrait of Aboriginal woman as a member of parliament is embarrassing.
"You are an inspiration to every one of your colleagues.
"You are an inspiration to women and girls, to First Nations people and to all Australians."
