  • This is a painting of a bushfire burning through the landscape. Family is protected by the elders who gather together to determine where the fire will burn next and keep their families safe. Only those with the knowledge passed down through generations know how to read the bushfire and the conditions of the landscape to be able to judge where it will burn next. "We also use the bushfire to help keep our country strong, after the fire the land is fresh and clean. The next year there will be new growth"
