As an aboriginal person our values and our culture manifests as a story, seen in the land and depicted in our art, songs and dances. This piece tells the story of new life and connection as the rainbow serpent travels and makes country. At some places he travels underground and comes up at a spring or waterhole which is represented by the circles, he also makes the creeks and rivers.
The rainbow serpent gives life to a countless number of things, in a countless number of different ways, this is the interconnectedness, the circle of life, birth, death and rebirth.
The unseen to this story is our relationships and obligation to mother earth and everything living and non-living in the universe. The intangible is our reciprocal connections to all these things, and the feelings that these things and places invoke in us.
