Safina Stewart: Building Communities
The painting is about communities
and families set free, strengthened.
The trees are rejoicing...
In the background is a mountain
The underground river indicates
the life force of Jesus
Both paintings have gum leaves
with a tint of gree 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
indicating God's faithfulness
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.
