art!

AU platterThis is a beautiful gift from my lovely Australian mate. The plate is food safe, and signed by the artist, who is a member of an indigenous community close to Sydney, that has an arts cooperative. The artists make and sell their art to help their community.

I decided to hang it on a wall, where it’s very noticeable upon entering my tiny place, even at 20 x 20 cm. (8 x 8 in.).

Some explanations, beginning on the upper right ~

  • The kangaroo is surrounded by animal tracks
  • The central design is a form of identity, surrounded with other tracks; the central doted circles may symbolise a water hole
  • The bottom left is a platypus, with fish swimming around

plate-sideAll the dots are raised slightly, which may also have significance, and the entire piece has a lovely curved shape, whilst the back is flat. The overall ochre (Autumnal) colours look great on my beige walls, and I love looking at it.

Thank you, Lovely Friend, for carrying it half way round the globe for me & you Lovely Readers, to enjoy. If any of you have further knowledge, please don’t hesitate to share.
