Journey of a Tommeginne Aboriginal from Tasmania


My name is Robert Chambers.
I was born in Devonport, Tasmania in 1972.

As you look at the painting, there are animals of Tasmania. First is the mutton bird, a wombat, the Tasmanian tiger and then the ringtail possum. There is also a kangaroo, the emu, the koala and the Tasmanian Devils.
The footprints mean they are my own.
The fires are all the places I have been to in Australia. I have been to Tassie, Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales and up to Queensland where I went right up to the top to Weipa. Then I came back to Victoria where I have lived for years.
The water spots are a waterhole, a waterfall and the sea.
I went back to Tasmania in 1995 but I didn't stay there long and when I got off the boat it was like I stepped back in time.
