Artwork Description

As I was watching, a lithe and elegant spirit dog, translucent in the shadows, came to the waterhole to drink. It paused to consider the providence of the moment and then sipped clear water to its heart's content.
Liminal iconography suffuses the scene – a hunter and his weapons, a bird, a boomerang; ritual bloodletting, death and revival.
