DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT
Painting and story by Garry Purchase
Whales are a special and sacred animal to me. They are the animal totem of my mother’s tribe, the Dharawal people and I've always felt an affinity with them.
Just a beautiful animal. I have been lucky enough to see these majestic and graceful creatures in all their majesty multiple times from both land and at sea and I'm always humbled to witness it.
This piece is a depiction of the Dharawal spirit animal breaching in a display of grace and power during its annual coastal migration under the glow of a super moon and connecting with the spirits of my ancestors, its journey guided by the dreaming in the night sky.
