Goanna Nesting


This painting of goannas nesting is about the goanna’s cycle of breeding and all the perils for their young. Goannas lay their eggs in termite hills because they keep at a perfect constant temperature during incubation, and the eggs are also guarded from predators such as carnivorous mammals, snakes and my mother’s people. We would eat goannas at all stages: eggs, young, adolescence and mature. They are part of our ancestral diet and a predominant part of our culture.
