The Forbidden Dance

$950

This is the story about a young female brolga who loved to dance. However, dancing for girls wasn’t allowed and so her Dreaming was forbidden, which is why dancing traditionally was Men’s Business. The Brolga Dancing story is significant to many Aboriginal groups who embrace dance as an important feature of their cultural identity.

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.
