I was very much looking forward to seeing the third project to be completed in the Silo Art Trail, at the little farming town of Sheep Hills.
Sitting alongside the railway line that once would have hauled grain from this site, the bare rear view of the silos gave no clue of the beauty that shines from the other side.
The portraits of Aboriginal elders at either side and two children between them makes a beautiful timeline between young and old.
The wrinkled eyes, grey hair and weathered skin of the Elders shows wisdom and maturity. The painted faces of the children shows a connection to their culture.
and splatters of purple covered the cement base of the silo.
...and and old hall.
