It's the Beginning of our Journey - Story of the Artwork

As you twirl a piece of ribbon, you don’t know which way it will go,
and this of course applies to the paths and journeys we take in our lives,
and how these paths can change as we go along in our life.

The road travelled together is easier than the road travelled alone
and that’s why the people in the art symbolise the support
of our family, friends, community and services.

The circles also symbolises that many people have travelled in and out
of our lives and these people are taking the same path into our Journey
of the Dreaming and the auras in the background are our ancestor
& family members guiding us to the dreaming.

Artist & Story Kahli Luttrell, Yorta Yorta descendent
