ARTISTS: Kenny Reid
LANGUAGE: Larrakia / Arrente
TITLE: Mangrove Hunting with Spear
MEDIUM: Painting - acrylic on canvas
Larrakia is saltwater and freshwater country. It is this Country and cultural inheritance from Granny Ababa that gives Reid his Turtle totem/moiety and other Dreaming stories such as "Itchy Billabong" and "Octopus."
Kenny paints and carves hunting scenes and foods - particularly the prized seasonal fauna such as crab, stingray, turtle, barramundi, bream, magpie goose and bush turkey. Reid collects the timber for his carving while out hunting on Larrakia lands, mangroves and waters around Darwin.
