Mum Jurgar


Jurgar is what we call octopus. In the south coast of New South Wales, there were Jugars everywhere. As kids we loved catching them for mum, that was her favourite. Mum still lives on the mission, she is still getting her favourite fish and most of all her Jurgar. I remember growing up you could smell Jurgar cooking in the pot and other sea foods, the smell would be all through the house. I have been living in Melbourne for 21 years and it was cheaper going fishing than to the store.

More information

What is artwork stretching?
Your stretched and ready to hang painting will come complete with D-rings, hanging wire, and a small artwork label affixed to the back.

Why can’t I select unstretched canvas?
Some of our paintings are painted close to the edge of the canvas, and don’t have a border wide enough for standard stretching. These artworks will be ‘strip-lined’ with a quality cotton edging. As this is a boutique process, these paintings must be stretched by The Torch and are not available to be shipped as unstretched artworks.

Some paintings may also be unavailable unstretched because they have already been stretched for use in exhibitions.

How much will the artist receive?
100% of the artwork price, set before the stretching and delivery costs are added, is paid directly to the artist.
