Kunta Nikinpa – Place of Lake Macquarie
This serene artwork depicts the shoreline of Lake Macquarie and the view from Toronto, looking East towards the ocean and the rising sun.
The painting captures this beautiful land and waterscape before colonisation, highlighting nature’s splendour and the land of Awabakal and is reflective of Toronto Private Hospitals footprint on country and an acknowledgement of traditional owners.
Flowing across the bottom of the work engraved middens represent discarded shell from shellfish eaten by Aboriginal people around Lake Macquarie, while two large gum trees encompassing the imagery connect to traditional scar trees through the large section of removed bark shown within the trunks, which was used for canoe and implement making in the area.
Soaring above the lake is the mighty Eagle Hawk or Wedge Tail Eagle, a much-revered totem of the Awabakal People. Dreamtime stories of the strong and powerful Eagle Hawk acknowledge this majestic bird as a protector of culture and Aboriginal traditions.
