Additional Information

Scar Pattern – Birthing Tree by Cara Shields represents a modern contemporary interpretation of special trees for women that where once common on traditional lands.

My grandmother told me a story of my great, great, great grandfather Jack Wright, was born under a tree on the Lachlan River, near Forbes.  Jack’s mother was a full blood aboriginal woman and a special ceremony would have taken place of returning the placenta to country. A Coolamon would have been carved from the tree trunk to carry Jack.

Yellow ochre which was highly significant to Wiradjuri women is used to represents the coolamon being carved from the tree trunk with the mirror image diamond shape is to convey the placenta being returned to country.

A diptych painting, they will form a mirror image. This pattern is to convey that these special sites designs, are forever walked upon in the past, present and future

Pinewood frame work.
