'Matriarchal Dreaming' Original Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas ready to hang
A portrait of a local Wardandi Elder, Matriarch, with red tailed Cockatoo feathers adorning her hair.
She holds knowledge and wisdom and shares 'ancient tales that transcend space and time'.
Mitchella Hutchins is a prominent Aboriginal businesswoman, mother of four children and foster parent to over twenty children. The eldest grandchild of Vilma and George Webb, who bestowed upon her the responsibility of cultural caretaker and knowledge sharer. Mitchella's telling of the Dreaming story of why we are all here and what our shared purpose is together. There are ancient truths she knows that inspire me at my core in wanting to know more. To understand at a depth I haven’t sat at before. Others are in need of her message also. That is why I sought to paint her.
The red tailed black cockatoo feathers provide a striking contrast as well as symbolic conveyance of spirit connection between Indigenous people and nature. Red tailed black cockatoo feathers represent powerful spiritual symbols in the Dreaming.’
This piece is finished with high quality oil paint & varnish on an equally high quality gallery wrapped canvas.
