According to Aboriginal mythology, before creation time there was nothing in the universe. No light, no human beings or animals, no trees or any vegetation. Soil was soft one day their forefathers sprung up from underneath the soil. They decided to create necessary things for future generations. Soon they started creating roads, gardens, trees, etc. They gradually built most of the necessary things for the future generations. Two rainbow snakes were guarding their creations, when the spirit people were getting tired in the evening.
Spirit people gather together and take rest in the evening. They discuss their works, drink, eat and dance. They make rules for the future generations to maintain social harmony. The understanding of aboriginal spirtuality is fundamental to maintain social order, respect for elders and maintain peace in the community.
Denise Doolan is a meticulous designer. She has depicted the Spirit People uniquely. They are dancing and meeting others excellently. She created the meeting place escellently by drawing the walking paths, men and women walking in a peaceful gathering.
