BUDJA BUDJA WHEEL 3 MONTHS LATER...
NEWEST WHEEL AT SWAMP GUM RISE
Beginning in early 2009 Liesbet and I began constructing a series of stone medicine wheels at various special places where we've been able to spend time. These places are the 'property' of friends of ours, usually in quite remote and undisrupted locations.
Our medicine wheels bring together our indigenous art inspirations and love of stone and Mother Earth. Each medicine wheel contains some of our hand-painted rocks and represents a synthesis of ancient and contemporary wisdom, honouring tradition and innovation alike.
Originally a form native American spiritual technology, we've expanded on the idea to include art, colour and information; with our 'Mother Earth Temple', what started out as simply one medicine wheel evolved into a massive project spanning several dimensions of space, time, and creativity.
Enjoy these photos and maybe you, too, will be inspired to 'get stoned' and build your own medicine wheel and paint some rocks!
See also our new 'chak-rok' blog dedicated to our painted rocks and to the spirit of stone...in progress.
