Handprints have a very long history in Australian Aboriginal art and Molisa is continuing the tradition using new colours and styles. In ancient caves, the higher the handprint on the wall meant the higher the position the person held in society. Molisa’s paintings only have one handprint in each as they are telling her own story. Since they are filled in with dot-work or colour, it means they carry the spirit of healing. Women in Aboriginal communities are often the healers as they collect the bush medicine and have healing power in their hands. In these paintings, the hand means new life, and a birthing place for women. The arch represents the entry to the spiritual world and to new beginnings while the stars reference the story of The Seven Sisters.
