"Ancestral Incarnation" 2010 Acrylic and medium on Ply 110cm x 102cm
$2,000 AUD Location California Ancestral Incarnation is about the loss and reclamation of cultural
identity. It depicts my own husband’s search for his ancestral roots as
an Australian Born descendant of an unknown Native American code talker
from the Second World War. The painting shows the central figure
moving toward the Sundance tree, in a traditional ceremony which honours
and seeks to give strength to the tribe, and indeed to all people who
are born of and related via the Mother Earth.
