Boab Prison Tree


This boab tree was used as a prison near Derby in North Western Australia. The spirits still live on in the tree. The dancers in the tree are dancing to show they will never forget what happened to their ancestors. One day I will visit this site with the man who told me this story about the tree and about his ancestors in his Country, a story which will be handed down from one generation to the other. I am so honoured to have his permission to paint this story from his land, his Country, his people.
