Blogging A-Z - April Challenge - I is for .....Indigenous

Since I first visited Australia in the early 1990s I have been fascinated by the Aborginal culture. Understanding what Dreamtime was and the amazing art that accompanied those stories.

This is a piece of artwork that was requested by Wagga Wagga City Council and this particular piece is afixed to the Library building.

The area of Wagga Wagga was originally occupied by the Wiradjuri Peoples and the City Council are really attempting to be inclusive of the historical and Indigenous aspects of Society. The Council have a Heritage Study which can be accessed HERE

I stood for ages looking at this painting, trying to fathom what it actually meant. I failed on that last visit, but perhaps next time!
