Bloody battles and new life – the story of the Waratah
Chris Tobin is a local Darug Aboriginal man, artist and educator who we sometimes manage to lure out to Brewongle. We love hearing his stories and feel privileged to learn of his cultural knowledge. Chris recently created some beautiful artwork on one of our grey gums during the Engaging Visions artists workshop. Enjoy this short video as he relates the story of the waratah via his artwork with bellbirds in the background and the majestic Hawkesbury River as a backdrop. Notice the contributions of the grey gum via some macabre leaking sap and look closely for the goanna claw marks on the tree.
