Description

This painting is my rendition of the charismatic evangelist Blind Moses Tjalkabota ( 1869 - 1954 ) Developed from an image that presented in the early hours before dawn. I recognised the shock of white hair from a documentary on Hermannsburg I'd watched the night before.
It is an intuitive painting of a great man but what I hoped to capture was his great spirit. Painted in the colours of the desert region he traversed visiting remote communities to impart his teachings.
(On foot, by buggy, camel, donkey or on the back of a truck )
If you are drawn to this picture, there are many dimensions to explore. It is a work from my heart for Spirit and has a Healing presence. Contemplation will engage the flow if you can open to it and the experience will be unique to you. After completing the picture I learned that in the last ten years of his life Moses preached and taught children at Jay Creek near Alice Springs.
Blind Moses Tjalkabota also assisted CFT Strehlow with his translation of the New Testament into western Arrarnta.
