Yamandhu Marang - First Nations Artwork

This NAIDOC Week we spoke with the wonderful First Nations artist Kylie Cassidy who created this beautiful piece for Erina Fair. Learn more about what the piece means below;  

Artwork Name: yamandhu marang

"(meaning welcome in my language Wiradjuri) the reason I chose this name is that The Central Coast region is home to many different nationalities and cultures including the many different first nations clan groups that live and work on Darkinjung country and we all feel welcome and privileged to share this beautiful area."

Art work meaning:

"It represents coming together living and working on Darkinjung country and the connection to our land and sea. The colours used reflect the local area and the Native Australian Pig Face plant which is found growing along our coastline and is a native food source rich in potassium and vitamin C.

The central circle is a meeting place surrounded by people and the dot work symbolises the rich culture and history we share here on Darkinjung country."
