Fire Country by Tristan Schultz

The illustration depicts an outstretched Elder’s hand offering to Australia their wisdom held in a firestick, should the nation care to listen; a handful of half-dry long grass and bark wrapped up, not too loose, not too tight, cool at the base and warm at the top. The symmetry of the artwork is a reminder that Indigenous Knowledge is contemporary and sophisticated. In this version of the artwork, the colours celebrate cool burning, the orange a visual reminder of fire and the blue emphasising the importance of the fire staying cool. Tristan developed the original version of this artwork in conversation with Victor Steffenson for the front cover of Victor's book Fire Country.
