This painting is about coming together to celebrate the moon and stars and our connection to them.

With a rich tradition of studying and interpreting the night sky, Aboriginals are renowned as the worlds earlies astronomers. Celestial bodies hold immense significance, serving as guides and courses of cultural wisdom.

Across the generations, moon phases have been instrumental in navigation, predicating tidal movement and initiating cultural ceremonies .
