Artist's Description

One of a series painted and exhibited of Uluru, Alice Springs.

Inspired from a trip to Central Australia.

French Paint on Silk.

There’s more beauty and simply awe inpsiring things to see along with aboriginal sacred sites when you walk around the rock.

The local Uluru indigenous community request that visitors respect the sacred status of Uluru by not climbing the rock, with signs posted to this effect. In 1983 the former Prime Minister of Australia, Bob Hawke, promised to respect the request from the community that climbing Uluru be prohibited, but broke his promise when title was handed to the traditional owners in 1985 because access for tourists to climb Uluru was made a condition before they could receive the title. The climb crosses an important dreaming track, which has been a cause of sadness and distress among traditional owners.
