Safina Stewart: Building Communities
The painting is about communities and families set free, strengthened.
The trees are rejoicing...
In the background is a mountain and campfire.
The underground river indicates the life force of Jesus.
Both paintings have gum leaves with a tint of green in the foliage to indicate a traditional welcome from elders on to the land.
This painting depicts pattern work in the earths structure beneath
the surface, indicating a time-line from older to newer layers
and God's faithfulness over generations.
Both paintings point to the central cross that lies between them as indicating that the death and resurrection of Jesus has been instrumental in the Jubilee.
