This artwork represents society being like a family tree where we all need to work together to ensure our future generations live harmoniously and experience a world that is free from discrimination, hate, warfare, poverty and starvation. The Blue Wren represents peace, harmony, and togetherness. The Aboriginal symbols for community, love, family, tribe, sitting together all represent kinship, family, and connection to land. These are significant elements as they help us realize the important role we play in ensuring we live in a reconciled world.
A reconciled future to me is a world where everyone gets along and judgement of one another is extinct. People from all walks of life have the same chances and everyone is given the opportunity to experience equal rights. It is a society where everyone works towards achieving the same common goal – a society where everyone can thrive and succeed.
