Luke Moodie (Boonwurrung), Nairm

Incl. tax

synthetic polymer paint and ochre on canvas, 2023


This piece represents Nairm (Port Phillip Bay) and the Kulin Nation people. It tells a story of a time of chaos when the the law of Bundjil was broken. The sea was angry, and with rising water threatened to take their Country. The frightened people called on Bundjil to help them. He was very angry that his laws of Country had been neglected by the people. He instructed them back to law to keep the balance of nature and to not harm the land or the children. Bundjil stopped the waters of Nairm rising and we are left with what we know today as Port Phillip Bay.
