Inspired by the Pitjantjatjara and Arrente people of Central Australia, eccentric Australian ceramic artist William Rickett’s (1898-1993) created a contemplative idyll in a rainforest setting on Mount Dandenong. It was a symbol of his hope that modern Australia would embrace the indigenous spiritual connection with the land. He began creating terracotta sculptures and integrating them into the lush landscape in 1934, and continued up to his death. Today, William Rickett’s Sanctuary is owned by the State of Victoria and is open daily for visitors.
“Earthly Mother” is my contribution to the Weekly Photo Challenge “Work of Art.”
I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia. My love of good food drives me as a cook, a reader, a traveller, an artist and but mostly as an eater.
I cooked professionally for many years but have no formal training. Simply guided by a love of eating good food, respect for ingredients and an abhorrence of artificial additives, I cook instinctively applying the technical know how acquired by experience.
I hope you enjoy what I share
