Title: The invasion

Artist: Ayva

Age: 11 years old

While I painted this I thought of how the British invaded Australia on the 26th of January 1788, the torn pieces have the British flag inside them because that represents when they took over Australia, this relates to the topic ‘always was, always will be’ because the Aboriginal’s owned this land we call home and just because the British came here and settled does not mean that they own this land, us Aboriginals will forever be the owners of Australia. When I was painting I wanted to show how much being aboriginal means to me, and how I am proud to be an aboriginal.
