Last weekend Budabare sung songlines to the police contingent who held the line of protesters at Parliament House. He walked in his art and culture, dancing in symbolic communication. He wove spiritual hand signals to bridge the worlds.And as he wove, his hands were wide open.
In many cultures, hands are known to be a conduit of power. A way to transfer divine powers. Transforming unseen energy into world form. A tool to communicate our ancestral connections, history and experiences to the outside world.
