Sky Whale, NSW Australia, 2007

A humpback whale made of bark chips and sand was built for the finale of a remarkable event called the 5 Lands Walk. This annual winter solstice moving festival is a 10K "walkabout" along a coastal path that knits five communities together via art, culture and music in celebration of nature at the height of the humpback whale migration. This is a completely non-commercial event which seeks to honor and reconnect with the Aboriginal culture . . . the oldest in the world. Click the picture to see the film of this event which features dance and movement on the whale.

"I just saw the photo and read the article about the dragonfly art in Eugene and was blown away by your ability
to infuse art with lesson -- impermanence, teamwork, and perspective.  I hope that your art makes it way into the eyes and hearts of everyone on earth who needs these messages. Your amazing approach should be in every school!"
Respectfully, Leigh Anne Jasheway-Bryant
