Embracing Culture and Traditions
My painting is about elders teaching the younger generations about culture and hunting different land animals. The dot work represents the watering holes that were used as gathering s and meeting places. Also I used traditional symbols to represent different objects, such as in the bottom left corner the symbol means meeting place, and the smaller symbols around it means adult and child and spears. In the top right corner has the marking of adult and child and also spears, but it also has different animal trails such as kangaroo, possum, general animal trails, emu and snake tracks. I believe tradition and culture is so important in today’s society, specially when younger generations are just beginning to learn.
