This artwork is about how Aboriginal people look at our world with it’s wildlife and forests. It shows the animals and particular landmarks that relate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The flags show the coming together of the two different cultures living in harmony on this land today. The animals in the hair of the person are Australian animals, with the jungle as well, they represent our land. In the eyes of an Aboriginal person, their country was taken away from them. Now, they ask, Where’s your Country?

Reconciliation means… Reconciliation means to me that different nations, cultures or even people get together, no matter what their differences.

My Country, Our Country
