STORY - Koorrookee Grandmother

This piece represents my beautiful grandmother Maude, the large woman symbol in the middle of the painting. In the top right corner is a star, representing her mother Amy (my great nanna) who is in Dreamtime. I come from a strong line of Aboriginal women and I am so grateful for their strength and pride in our culture throughout tough times. There are then 5 people in the bottom corner, representing my dad, his three brothers and one sister. There are then 16 children, representing the 16 grandchildren of my nan's. The dreamy background is symbolic of stars in the sky, For Our Elders who are in Dreamtime.
