Stone Fish Traps, 2017

61 x 91 cm

Acrylic on canvas


"Ngurruwarra means stone fishtrap in our language. We can still see the fishtraps that the old people build along the coasts of Bentinck Island. Old men and women would make fish traps from sea rocks ... you get fish, stingray and turtle .. water go out and get 'em and cook 'em up."
