'Whale Dreaming'Regular price $465.00
Whales are a part of the dreaming of various mobs throughout Australia. As we travel, the animals that visit our Country remind us of our connection to culture and our place in the world. Growing up on Gunditjmara Country, Lowell had the privilege of swimming and bodyboarding where the Whales would come to birth their young calves every year. As a young boy Lowell was taught the Whale Dance which strengthened his spiritual and cultural understanding of the connection between these beautiful creatures and the Peek Whurrong and Kirrae Whurrong peoples of the Maar Nation. In travelling back to his Country in the Kimberley, Lowell learnt how the Whales pass through these waters down to the southern coastline. The artwork is a representation of the whale dreaming of these two beautiful places combining as one in this impressive piece.
This piece was created on Wadawurrung Country at Bancoora Beach in Victoria.
