‘A most fascinating aspect about Sacred Sites any where in the world is that regardless of the incredible number of labyrinthine sites with ornately rich carvings, sculptures, monumental and unique architecture, the sites themselves are sacred and have been worshipped long before the construction of any kind. Being here reactivates the ancient power of the land and it’s people and unavoidably aligns visitors with the inherent energy. A Myth never was, it always is.’’ Tania Summerell

Vientiane Times ‘Australia’s Ramayana Painting to hang in Lao Museum’ Laos January 2006
‘…recording the ancient cultural heritage of various places…Tania Summerell studies cultures worldwide, writing about and visually recording their traditional practices, symbolism, architecture, scriptures, political history, spirituality and environment.’

Bangkok Post Outlook Art Section ‘Australian Artist Ayutthaya Inspiration Painting on the Past’ Thailand January 2006
‘Summerell passionately believes artists play an essential role in recording and preserving the rich cultural Heritage found at ancient sites. To paint at ancient sites is a way of preserving ancient wisdom, to ensure that we sustain that for our own health. Art plays an incredible role in bridging cultures   The boundaries of language and origins of place are dissolved’
