Artwork Description

Acrylic on linen

Signed certificate of authenticity.

"My country is behind Ninyilki, this is where I was born on a saltpan under the ti-trees. You can see Sweers Island from here. My father, King Alfred, was dragging grass across the sea with his other wives, to catch fish. He didn't know I was coming. It was my aunty who ran to let my father know. Artist Statement: My grandmother delivered me, she was the one that cut my chord with a special shell. They thought I would be a boy because I was so big in my mother's tummy. My father put me in a coolaman and carried me all the way to Oak Tree Point, a better place to camp. It was a long way to walk all that way carrying me."
