The Land Remembers

Another piece created in the majesty of Wollumbin , in the late afternoon. This also has some disturbing early settler drawings reproduced under the foreground, where First Australians are being massacred firing sqad style. There were a few stories I was told  of the local Bundjalung people having encountered this murderous behaviour from the new settlers. I felt to retell the dark victory the colonialists had over this earthcentric culture and how the changes we have wrought are imbalancing precariously the fine thread of nature's gifts.
