My Country #434

about

Monica paints her grandmother's dreaming and often spends time at her community's sacred sites, especially the women's cave, a place of resting and healing. In this piece we see an aerial overview of her homelands, with the concentric circles representing various holy places. The wavy parallel lines represent 'tali' sand hills.
