Jiinda means sister in Gumbaynggirr
Gumbaynggirr people are matriarchal so the women are highly respected.
This painting represents the essence of womanhood and motherhood.
Our connection to our Mother Earth and all it brings, all the elements, water, earth, fire and wind.. it connects to our totems and sense of preservation.
The circle in the middle represents our core
pure unconditional love,
The top circle represents our strength and the bottom our resilience.
The women’s symbols either side are women gathering to share knowledge and wisdom.
The bottom circles are neighboring tribes the women all comes together to support one another, on their unique journeys through womanhood.
