Archaeologists and Anthropologists Robt. Bednarik and JP Montelle pay a visit to the ‘Merat’ cave near Mt Gambier in the ‘Limestone Coast” region of South Australia. This cave was discounted 15 years ago as being not important as a source of early Aboriginal rock art. This visit discovered a new chamber with a wealth of early evidence of human (and extinct animal) markings which warrant much further investigation.

Impressive landscapes, memorable moments, and time to be yourself. The wide open spaces in Australia’s outback let you get away from all. See the mighty red Uluru (Ayers Rock) change colour at sunset or ancient Aboriginal rock art in Kakadu National Park.

Soul’s spirals with Iovu’s relaxation music Spiral ——- The spiral has found its way into the art of almost all cultures, from ancient primitive rock carvings on all continents to today’s corporate logos. They show up in Celtic art, Dacian artifacts, native American petroglyphs, Nazca earthworks, Neolithic Cucuteni (Romania), Arabic architecture, Japanese rock gardens, Hindu spiritual texts, Australian aboriginal paintings and African art. Surprisingly, no religious or political group has claimed exclusive rights to the spiral. It remains non-sectarian, or maybe pan-sectarian. The spiral belongs to everyone and excludes no one In various mythologies the spiral is a globally positive symbol. Here are some of the meanings that have been attributed to the spiral. Carl Jung, the famous psychiatrist, said that the spiral is an archetypal symbol that represents cosmic force. In ancient Britain, the spiral seems to have been associated with the feminine as the doorway to life. It has been associated with the cycles of time, the seasons, the cycle of birth, growth, death, and then rebirth. The cycles of time and nature are the cycles of life.

This film is derived from Colin Legg’s outstanding night sky timelapse footage, commissioned for the ANCIENT SKIES project, shot with fisheye and flat lenses in Western Australia in late 2010. It was edited and rendered to 2.35:1 aspect ratio, and was our entry for the ‘Widescreen Weekend’ event as part of the Bradford International Film Festival 2011, with a digital print built by Alex Hibbitt of Arts Alliance Media. The soundtrack by Toby Marks of BANCO DE GAIA was specially written and performed for the film, with some minor re-mixing by Grant Wakefield. The title is from the Aboriginal Yolngu langauge meaning ‘Sun Woman – Moon man.’ A 2k Digital Cinema MXF print of this film is available on request. _________________________________________________ Camera: Colling Legg Original Music: Toby Marks Digital Print: Alex Hibbitt – Arts Alliance Media Edit / Music Re-mix: Grant Wakefield ancientskies.info grantwakefield.com banco.co.uk artsalliancemedia.com
