STORY - Quandamooka
Artist: Shara Delaney
The three main circles within this painting represent the three Quandamooka clan groups; namely Noonuccal, Gorenpul, and Ngugi clans.
The wavy lines emanating out from the clan circles are the flowing waters of the coastal regions. These lines also depict “connection lines to country and animals”. The motifs of fish, turtles and dolphins are totemic to the various clans and represent identity.
The soft blue colour palette of the painting echos the colours of the seas and coastal
regions of the Quandamooka.
