Wreath

So it’s been a while since I’ve made anything, but the idea for this evolved during my frequent circuits around bush track at the end of my street.

It represents the circular track around Kaluna Island and is made from plants and feathers I’ve collected during my many visits there.

Walking amongst the giant red gums that bare the marks of generations of people who have lived here before me, I see the path ahead as a shared one.

Together we can continue nurturing our connection to Bpangerang culture and acknowledge our privilege and responsibility as custodians of Bpangerang country.

Wreath, for Bpangerang country
