So inspiring is this artwork and it's story created by talented Indigenous Artist Gary Purchase we had to share it with you!
Under the Southern Cross
We live in a beautiful country.
From the ocean and beaches to the mountains, rivers and the red centre of the outback.
Yet we as Australians both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal can't seem to find a common ground to make things work and move forward. This is a common problem for First Nations people from all around the world.
Look up at the stars. The stars were there before us and they'll still be there long after we're gone.
They are the same stars our ancestors would have gazed upon thousands of years ago and they are also the ones future generations thousands of years from now will see.
Looking at the night sky is all it takes to put what we were, are and ever will be into perspective. It highlights how insignificant and petty the separatist ideology of racial prejudice, segregation and class systems really are.
Localised thinking, not just here, but all over the world is our downfall. In the end none of that really matters. In the grand scheme of things we are ALL in it together on this lonely little planet as one race, the human race.
That is what needs to be realised. Enjoy the beauty of what we have, work together, don't take anything for granted and love each other.
