Photographer's Note

Carnarvon Gorge was a holy place for aboriginal people but the most holy of all was a place called today Art Gallery. I think that it must be like our cathedrals. There are a few walls covered with aboriginal painting and bas-relieves. One wall is totally covered by sculptures of human vulva. Jokingly, we said that it was what the guy had on his mind all the time, but in the reality, these were made by women, not by men. Vulva is a symbol of life and most probably women wishing for children came to this place to carve the symbol to ensure that their wish would be fulfilled.
