Lagau Githal (State II)
My art work describes the stories told by our ancestors through their dreams,Which then pass down by our fore father's to son. This transcript is in our mind, Then the stories are put into paint and carving.
The creatures in my Lino print are described as the Myths and Legends of out totems. Myths are stories of our dream time, Told by our story teller. These creatures in my lino print where once in human form that change into form of a animal. then there are legends which are stories told by our totem that our ancestor's have inherited.
these totem have become legends and symbols, in a form of an animal that identify the clans or tribes group in the Torres Strait.
