Bush Turkey – 2022
Acrylic on Canvas – 40 x 40 cm (pre-stretched)
Bush Turkeys gather in the wetlands all around the Gulf Country. Historically, they also show up in dreamtime stories and ancient cave paintings.
The bush turkey is also an important food to indigenous people and are still hunted today, by the same simple ‘grab and bag’ method used since the old days.
