Australia is still in my mind therefore I dedicate this post again to our guide Willie Gordon in Queensland, but first of all I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year! These photos were taken in 2006.
Willie Gordon says:"This painting is in the Rainbow Serpent cave, and it tells us about Yirmbal, the Creation Story.
We all want to know how things are made. Most people look at it in one of two ways - practical and scientific, or spiritual. Is there a Creator? Is there a spirit that gives life? Or is creation just a practical thing that has evolved over millions of years.
Aboriginal people believed there was a Spirit Giver for all living things. Because life comes to us all from the Spirit Giver, Aboriginal people believe that we are all created equal. The differences between people only occur with religion, culture and environment, but spiritually we are all the same."
