Wurdiyi- Jelly Fish – 2022
Acrylic on Canvas – 61 x 112 cm
In the build up to the wet season thousands of jelly fish come into the sea around the islands and the sea turtles eat them to make themselves fat before they lay eggs and mate. This painting shows the Wurdiyi all around the island reefs. The Wurdiyi dreaming stories belong to the Wuyaliya and Wurdaliya clan.
