I find your understanding of the painting quite interesting. You paid attention to even the slightest of details & explained them so thoroughly. I also like the fact that at the end you expressed that the painting is open to interpretation & your blog is just one of many. I didn’t notice at first how the aboriginals were actually wearing “white people clothes”, stripped away of all the things that made them, well, them. I would like to add about that the little girl in the middle. To be stripped off of her heritage at such a young age, an age where she barely had any understanding about herself or where she came from, is such a devastating thing, in my opinion. I think Drysdale put her right in the middle with a purpose.
There’s not much that’s wrong with your entry & I find it a very interesting read.
