Acrylic on Linen
A dreamtime inspired painting given to Peter with respect by Aunty June Barker.
This painting tells us of the beautiful girl who defied traditional law to dance and the events that ensued.
This was in the time of the dreaming when magic was common place in the moulding of creation.
|Birth of the Butterflies||
A truly beautiful story depicting the true philosophical nature of our Indigenous people. In the time when death did not exist, creation was suddenly forced to consider it for the first time. After turning to their leaders, clever ones and most wise. The answers to the mystery of life, death and reincarnation were carried on the wings of the lowly insects, Birth of the Butterflies.
This painting has been purchased by Barbera Haynes.
