Wurdiyi- Portpita jelly fish – 2019
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 41x41cm
In the build up season before the wet season thousands of porpit come into the sea around the islands and the sea turtle eat them to make themselves fat before they lay eggs and mate. This painting shows the wurdiyi down the bottom and a reef along the top. The wurdiyi belongs to the Wuyaliya and Wurdaliya clan.
