This painting is called ‘Survival’ because each animal on this painting was a part of Aboriginal ways. Not only did these animals help keep us alive for tens of thousands of years, they also taught us the way of life, the way of mother nature, and how to hunt to survive.

Each one of these animals also represents all of the different tribes from all over Australia. Every single line on this painting is a story shown and passed down down from our Ancestors and Elders past and present, to help carry on our culture to this day and for thousands of years to come. The snake too goes from animal to animal on this painting and is showing you that no matter what tribe, we always come together – as we like to say, ‘one mob’. Each dot is my connection to my Ancestors’ Dreamtime.

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.
