Marara Gin Ganiin ‘Old Gum Trees’


Marara Gin Ganiin ‘Old Gum Trees’ is a creation that tells the story of our old people, our old ways and our sacred gifts provided by Mother Earth.

The trees are the passage to our history, our ancestors and play an essential part of our connection to Country and Mother Earth. The layers are intricate and layered and have been marked since the old days to help mark directions, for birthing, for ceremonies, for creation of tools and for burial marking places.

You will see the line work that is an artistic technique connected to my mob as a proud Wiradjuri Yinaa ‘woman’. The details shows is to show the movement the piece holds when representing the depth of the importance of our old gum trees to Aboriginal people and cultural practices such as mark making. The dots with little dots around them are stars. They represent the journeys of our ancestors moving from land to our skies as the trees grow and how trees help keep our ancestors spirits alive and strong all around us.
