In the continuation of this conversation which we will publish next Thursday, Fr Eugene begins to provide some of his insights into Aboriginal spirituality and the different ways in which the indigenous people relate to one another, to their land, and to the spiritual forces they perceive shape their life.

This is a book about art. More specifically, it is about Aboriginal art. More specifically still, it is a book about Aboriginal art from a limited geographical area. It is a book about artworks created, for the most part, long before the first Europeans ever set foot in that geographical area (to which we refer today as the Blue Mountains of New South Wales). These artworks were, furthermore, produced in a cultural context that could not be more different to the western cultural context in which we find ourselves in Australia in 2016. ...John Van der Have, author.
