DHIIRA'S STORY TOLD IN ART

Dhiira is represented within the central circle of the painting, working closely with a company, forming relationships and sharing knowledge. From here the company grows outwards using the knowledge gained, allowing them to create their own connections and to become more culturally aware. 

Dhiira in Khuttung language translates to branch. A closer look at the painting will reveal branches growing directly from the central point, expressing the cultivation of this growth within a company by Dhiira from the very beginning. 

Within this work you can find many references to circles, this is to represent the knowledge shared by Dhiira growing radially rather than along a straight line. This radial growth means continual growth, instead of coming to a final ending point. 

Through this painting I hope to show the way in which Dhiira nurtures your company from the beginning to allow for it to have a better and more inclusive future with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
