I spent exactly six months on this painting. It comes from an idea that the loss of son is a very heart-rending event regardless of any particular culture. I chose the Michelangelo marble version as the basis of the painting but where traditionally the grieving mother was Mary, in this painting it is a grieving Aboriginal. There is no gender implied, but I have attempted to draw into the theme an embracing gum tree and an empathetic Australian lizard in the foreground. This is an attempt to draw the viewer to the grief of the moment but is not meant to engender any political statement whatsoever.
