Dreamtime by mirroreyesserval Dreamtime by mirroreyesserval
This years contribution to the Anthro Calendar. [link]

The theme for 2013 is 'Cultures' and I was given 'Aboriginal Australia.' The animals featured are Red Kangaroo, Black Cockatoo, Bilby, and Echidna. They were originally going to be up on the wall as paintings with the Python. But the scene I went with was too cute not to do, after it was suggested. ^^

What is Dreamtime?: [link]

Many many thanks to =pandemoniumfire who gave me a great amount of help from an Australian's perspective, which I'm extremely grateful for. (I feel like I almost steered toward cliché with the background painting... I meant for it to just be a python, but it's giving off Rainbow serpent vibes. ^^)

Inspired.  A very restful and contemplative piece. 
There's a mood here of comfort and quiet companionship and of a space which is sacred, but also inviting.  Also the trance-like relaxation which comes from social grooming [the echidna painting on the 'roo.]  I imagine a quiet sort of sing-song chant accompanying.  ;)
