This artwork is by Madison Connors, a Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung and Kamilaroi artist based in Melbourne. The story behind this piece is a depiction of a seed (in the middle), this seed has been planted in Community, this seed is planted as the beginning for many, and this seed has strong connections to the soil it grows within (the Community). The seed also holds strong connections to the roots of the tree, and the roots, our Ancestors are the beginning of all Aboriginal people’s growth.
