With this sculpture Sarrita wanted to translate her ‘Our Land' story into a 3D object. The choice to use metal is a reflection on the strength and longevity of the Australian Indigenous culture and the stories passed down over the centuries. The natural tarnish is a reflection of the age of the markings and long history of these stories.

Our Land

In the ‘Our Land’ imagery Sarrita is telling the story of the many paths taken when someone leaves their homeland but always feeling connected to their community. In the painting the thick circle represents the homeland and the delicate lines represent the crisscrossing pathways across the land. The many pathways and the ‘tears’ in the pathways and extra layers remind us this journey has been going on with our ancestors throughout humanity.
