“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.”

I saw this public art behind a tree as we were walking from a restaurant back to where Pat lives. This is near the train station in Northcote. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find out anything more about this…like who painted it or when it was done because it was off limits and can’t find anything in Google.

There is no written language for Australian Aboriginal People so in order to convey their important cultural stories through the generations it is portrayed by symbols/icons through their artwork.
It is imperative to pass on information to preserve their culture. These vary from region to region, they are generally understood and form an important part of Australian Indigenous art.
Symbols are traditionally used as an important part of contemporary Aboriginal art. Most of the symbols used in Aboriginal iconography are relatively simple but to tell a more complex story they are used in more elaborate combinations. (Excerpts from @aboriginal-art-australia.com)
It is an Electrical station with doors all around it.
