From the Aboriginals collection for M & S Textiles.
According to Aboriginal mythology, before creation time there was nothing in the universe. No light, no human beings or animals, no trees or any vegetation. The soil was soft, one day their forefathers sprung up from underneath the soil. They decided to create the necessary things for future generations. Soon they started creating roads, gardens, trees, etc. They gradually built most of the necessary things for future generations. Two rainbow snakes were guarding their creations when the spirit people were getting tired in the evening.
Spirit people gather together and take rest in the evening. They discuss their works, drink, eat and dance. They make rules for future generations to maintain social harmony. The understanding of aboriginal spirituality is fundamental to maintain social order, respect for elders and maintain peace in the community.
Denise Doolan is a meticulous designer. She has depicted the Spirit People uniquely. They are dancing and meeting others excellently. She created the meeting place excellently by drawing the walking paths, men & women walking in a peaceful gathering.
