If you ever felt the need to travel to the moon, make sure you look down and appreciate the Dreamtime artwork by 76 year old Indigenous artist Lena Nyadbi from the Warmun Community at Turkey Creek in Western Australia within the Kimberley region.


The art entitled 'Dayiwul Lirlmim' (Barramundi Scales) spans amost 700 square metres and sits atop the roof of Musee de quai Branly where also renowned Indigenous artist Ningura Napurrula has adorned the ceiling with her 'Rockholes' Dreaming.


If the moon seems too ambitious, just visit the city of love - Paris, France. For a few dollars you can climb the Eiffel Tower and view Lena's art. For those who find comfort in their home, you can view it on Google Earth.
