Long Neck Turtle


I am a young, proud Koorie man and the long neck turtle is the totem of the Yorta Yorta clan, one of the tribes on my mother’s side. The two blue symbols with circles in them stand for the waterholes of the Murray River and the other two symbols stand for the men and women of the tribe, the men at top left and the women at bottom right. The red lines are their walking tracks. The hand in the middle of the turtle stands for the people of the tribe.

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.
