Original artwork by Christi-Anna Rose Hollingsworth.

 

This painting is a depiction of the Great Barrier Reef. It is one of the seven wonders of the natural world and is the only living thing on earth visible from space.

I am a saltwater woman with deep connections to the reef and the ocean on the Far North Queensland coast. This painting tells a story of me and my strong bloodlines as a First Nations woman. I have illustrated waterholes, sea grass, coral, oyster, shells and formations of reef (called atolls). I grew up fishing and swimming in the reef and the ocean and it keeps me connected to my culture and our stories. Here I feel strong. The reef is a spiritual place of cleansing.
