Hunting Goanna


I painted the sand goanna because I am Yorta Yorta on my dad’s side and mum’s family are from Moonacullah, a mission just out of Deniliquin, and the sand goanna is the totem from up that way. The sand hills run from Cummeragunja all the way up to Moonacullah. The sand goanna is a bit whiter than other goannas, which I think is just to help it blend in.
The symbols at the top and bottom are of four young boys going out to hunt the goanna. These represent me and my cousins. We caught a goanna a while ago but decided not to eat it and so let it go.

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.
