Sea Shore and Shell Story – 2021
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 167 x 41 cm
On the sea shore when the waves draw back, there are lines in the sand that show where the water has been. In the lines are shells which have been left by the waves. These were once the home to small animals, but are empty now.
We spend time collecting the shells to make bush jewellery and decorate ceremonial objects and tools.
