Enjoyed the stretches of level walking paths like this, even though the day became very hot further into the journey.
the board reads: "My real name is William Bates, but they call me Badger. My piece, I call it Connections, that's with the earth and stars and stuff like that. I chose this stone from Wilcannia because we believe, my people believe, that the Rainbow Serpent not only lives in the rivers, but it lives in the springs underground, and if we don't try and look after the environment more, it's going to be ruined."
detail of these mosaics is mentioned in this article featuring things to see and do in the Warrumbungle region.
It reads in part that the artist of these mosaic pieces (5) in total, is Pamela Denise from Nymbodia. It is her interpretation of the women of the Pilliga.
This was my favourite
There were some wild flowers happening here and there to admire, and the sounds of birds too, though they were very difficult to capture. Yes, I tried. Sun in wrong direction, too much foliage, lots of excuses. Heading on down towards the gorge now.....
This area would have been the perfect place for the Aboriginals to camp; encapsulated by a huge rock wall along one side, lots of tall timbers, and flat areas too to set up camp by the creek. It was very serene to be standing down here after walking all along the top of the ridge before this.
A better look to the rock wall from here and I'm wanting to show you something at the top of it. One of the sculptures already featured in Part One ...you will see it better in the last photo, next.
there is Brett Garling's, First Lesson, bathed in sunlight, looking out over the scenic Dandry Gorge.
