Description: George Liwikan
1990
Boss Squid
natural earth pigments on canvas
77 x 98 cm

PROVENANCE:
Kimberley Australian Aboriginal Art Certificate of Authenticity.

OTHER NOTES:
This dreaming is about the flying fox changing into a squid and back into a flying fox again. There are three of the artist''s totems: the flying fox, squid and sacred rocks. The five panels are divided by four vertical lines, dividing the transition from flying fox to squid. In these vertical lines there are bat droppings indicated from top to bottom. The fourth panel is where the sacred rocks are shown, the final panel right, is where the adult, or boss squid is displayed. The sacred rocks area is never to be seen by women or children. Triangle borders top and bottom symbolise clouds on the horizon, and rocks over the reef.
