Title of Painting: “Aboriginal people Walking on Country”
This is very important to know the land, we see here in this rich story the footsteps showing the journey between the hot red desert sands and the cool of the bushlands. There are dry river beds, shown as the gold lines across the sand, and the women sitting along the edges with their children ( the U shapes) and their digging sticks.
In the top right corner our the Aboriginal and Torrens Straight Islanders national Flags

On behalf of the Gallery we firstly acknowledge the land now known as Australia belonged to a Nation of People,widely sophisticated, Aboriginal people of Culture, With Gratitude to our Elders past, present and emerging, the Country's ancient Cultural heritage. Always Was, Always Will Be, Aboriginal Land.
We hope that by sharing the Stories of the Artworks more attention is paid to the land supporting us through the emmense Generational Knowledge of this Country Aboriginal people have.
