Created for the Once Upon A Blythe Exhibition in Melbourne, Australia at the Auguste Clown Gallery August 7th-23rd, 2015. The theme for the show was Fairies and Folklore. Since the Gallery show was in Australia, I wanted to honor the continents indigenous peoples the Aborigines. They have a tradition deep in folklore and tales told during what is called Dream Time, one of these tales is of a woman called Gnowee. The Sun Goddess of the Wotjobaluk Indigenous people of Southeast Australia. The Tale of Gnowee Gnowee lived on the earth at a time when the sky was dark and people used torches to see their way. One day while she was gathering yams, her baby son wandered away. With a huge torch, Gnowee set off in search of her son, but she could not find him. She continues to search, lighting the whole sky with her torch as she searches for her son. It is said that if she ever finds her son, the world would be plunged into eternal darkness.
