Work Horse

Description

“Work Horse” constructed by weaving together a smelly old collar used to harness work horses and raffia,
this work has a more personal response as I acknowledge the woman in my family and there experience in the process of being made useful and civilised.
Its about the training of young girls and woman in duties on farms and homes by both day and night. Often found listed in farmers stock catalogues, are the
words similar to (five cows, two horses and one goat and two gins). With Aboriginals seen as no more then livestock, in need of taming, for the propose of duty
and labour.
