Title: Bunjil

Bunjil flies high over the Yarra River watching over all he has created.

Bunjil (the eaglehawk) represents the Creator Spirit;
The set of three wavy lines represent the Yarra River in Victoria;
The campfire circles symbolise families and communities of the Kulin Nation gathering together;
The straight lines are the paths and relationships that connect people to each other;
The three large circles and lightning represent the power of prayer, worship and relationship with the Creator.

This painting of Bunjil is about how our Creator is lovingly watching over, protecting, providing and participating in relationship with His creation. It beakons our response to the invitation to be in relationship with Him as we live in connection with each other and the land.
