Red Hands

Posted: August 23, 2017 in Art, History

Fascinating. Thinking of the hand art we did as children it seems some things don’t change

Through My Lens

Australia has a rich Aboriginal heritage, a small part of which is showcased in the Red Hands Cave located in the Blue Mountains National Park. I took a soul-enriching 2 hour walk through the rain forest to reach the cave, which is more of a hollow in the rock face. The hand art is thought to be between 500 and 1600 years old. Standing there felt surreal and peculiar, seeing the hand prints that belonged to individuals that lived hundreds of years before me, in a world that was very different to the one I know. What I would give to be able to travel back in time!
