This work is a viewing into how I see and walk in my existence. I am surrounded by my Ancestors, something I remind myself of regularly. Faces and figures are seen throughout the piece, these are my Old People and a reflection of who I am.
The sight of Country highlights its brilliance, with thought to its health being of the utmost importance. The object held in my hand are balance scales. This being a representation of trying to find balance within the different aspects of our lives.
