About the work

I am a Jagera woman. This work depicts a Jagera Ancestor of mine from Meanjin. My Ancestor reached out to me through a dream. After I completed the work, my Dad shared with me that this is my Grandfather who came to me, connected with me, and stayed with me throughout the creation of this piece. The artwork’s story represents how Ancestors live through us and guide us to tell our cultural stories and help us grow in our cultural roles within our culture and community.
