‘Protecting Country’

91 x 91cm

Acrylic on stretched canvas ready to hang.

A work about caring for, healing and protecting Country. This work symbolises an aerial view of country. Country sustains our lives in every aspect – spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, and culturally. We sing, celebrate and dance about Country. First Nations peoples are accountable to Country and we must ensure it is protected and passed on to future generations. To acknowledge and heal Country, we need greater protections for our lands and waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage, defending them from exploitation, desecration, and destruction. First Nation’s people have protected, thrived and lived sustainably with the land for over a thousand generations. It is inherent to our identity and culture and is more than a place. Country is our mother, and also gives us sense of belonging. Our ancestors walked this sacred country for millennia and continue to live on in the land, water and the sky.
