Lesley wrote: Billyara and I were paired up by the Gallery to this work. On our first meeting, we had talked for 3 hours before we had realised it, ideas grew from a single piece to this instillation. First came Billyara's idea of the 7 spirit people, then we thought of a sculpture of an Indigenous man to go with it. On our second meeting he brought a book to show me. In there was a picture of his Great Great Grandfather, Baboo fred, playing a violin. I just melted when I saw it. A fantastic picture of a great man. I just had to make it. Billyara added the didgeridoo piece which I think ties it all together. We show through our art the harmonies of music. Billyara's spirit people of the past seem to dance, then his Great Great Grandfather playing the violin to the didgeridoo are musical symbols of a bond.
