This Artwork is part of Koskela's current exhibition Spirit in Bark: A Celebration of Bark Art from Across Oceania, featuring a collection of works from Elcho Island Arts, Maningrida Arts & Culture and Omie Artists.
Jean-Mary was on the highly sacred Mt. Ömie, the first mountain, which forms part of the greater volcano Huvaimo or Mt. Lamington. The mighty headwaters of the Girua River flow down from Mt. Ömie. It is here that the first man and woman, Mina and Suja, were created. At this site, Jean-Mary observed a curious phenomenon of rock forming on the waterfall rockface and then again in the river, built up from the high concentration of minerals from the volcanic water. Using uehorëro (her own wisdom) she was inspired to create this design, sodirejé, rock forming from minerals. The lines that run through the work are known as orriseegé or ‘pathways’ and provide a compositional framework for the design.
