AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Art of Schapelle Corby

Schapelle Corby is an Australian charged with possession of drugs and currently in an Indonesian prison.
She is serving a sentence of 20 years.
Questions about her innocence continue.
See more details HERE!
This artwork is based on her plight and is for sale at the Gaga Gallery, Tootgarook on the Mornington Peninsula.
I'm not sure if it was intended, but the word "innocence" on the tag is broken into what sounds like "in-no-sense"! Quite ambiguous!
It has been reported that her family - father and brother - have questionable practices too!
Should they be implicated?

A sad situation whether she is innocent or guilty. The art is powerful.
