About the Artwork

Artwork created for Yawar

Connecting through song and dance

This art piece represents our First Nation communities of Australia coming together sharing knowledge through song and dance.

The circles represent different communities with the linking lines and dots depicting the connections and stories told whilst travelling from community to community. The artwork surrounding the circles and linking lines signify our lands and waters. The outer line and dots represent our First Nation communities coming together as one but still remaining their difference.
