    • Kuruwarriyingathi Bijarrb Paula Paul - Fish Traps, 2005
      Jun. 20, 2023

      Kuruwarriyingathi Bijarrb Paula Paul - Fish Traps, 2005

      Est: $4,000 - $6,000

      The artist has painted her Bentinck Island homeland as a flat diamond shape surrounded by a massive tracing of stone ngurruwarr (fish walls designed to trap fish and turtles as the tides fall). These constructed walls appear in the lower right of the painting. Bburrkund (cicatrice) motifs, seen in this work as vibrant trajectories of colour, signify the first body scars of young male initiates, and those of women who are cut during mourning ceremonies. Paula also references the cockleshells Kaiadilt women gather and line up in pleasing patterns in the ashes as they cook them.
