Water Hole Dreaming – A beautiful piece in rich, earthy tones.
An authentic Indigenous design by Aboriginal artist Dean Jakamara Briscoe.
"This painting represents all the water holes around Australia, it shows that there are many and in different sizes. The large water holes are obviously seen and if they are not dangerous you can swim in them and some are well hidden throughout the land. Aboriginal people over the years have discovered the water holes that were created and have used boulders or rocks/sticks etc to protect them and keep animals from polluting the water. The important cultural traditions and locations of the water holes were taught to the younger generations in order to survive on the land and respect it, so when the people went hunting they would know where and how to find water. The round symbols are the water holes and the coloured dots represent the Aboriginal flag and the land formations. " Dean Jakamara Briscoe
