Flat-ish platter

Here is my submission for the monthly 360 challenge. My “flatter platter” is not super flat, but I wanted to do something which reminded me of my trips to Australia and so I wanted to show the colours of the Red Centre with ancient pictograms from the Aboriginal people including their cave art. The images are supposed to tell a story but it’s up to you to decipher!! The images are pyrographed. The edge is burned to echo the burning that Aboriginals still do today. I used Intrinsic colours sprayed on with an airbrush then sprayed with alcohol (I know it’s a waste😉) to get a speckled effect. Also just sprayed straight from the bottle to get spattering. The wood is Tulip Wood which is not great but again I knew it would be heavily coloured. Finished only using fine Yorkshire Grit. Platter is 9 inches diameter.
