The Earth Speaks

Earth Speaks jpegs

This is currently being prepared for publication. Draft version on show at Latrobe Regional Gallery Morwell.

The Earth Speaks is an allegory which invites us to listen to find the gifts which come from the wounds of loss and separation. Through story and symbols, it describes the process of healing the losses of family, culture and Country that have been passed down through the years.

The Magic Dilly Bag is a metaphor for the healing knowledge that women have, the food, medicine, plants, seeds, creativity, ochres and dreaming stories. 

The Earth Speaks tells how the Old People dealt with separation and loss and how and where they stored their knowledge. When the separated parts of the Magic Dilly Bag are reunited, the knowledge is made whole again and can be passed on.
