Creation of Dungala (the Murray River)


This is the story of Biami and the great Rainbow Snake. The Rainbow Serpent followed an old woman, Gumuk Winga, and her dog. She was dragging her digging stick. The Rainbow Serpent followed the marks left by the digging stick, pushing the earth up to create hills and valleys and throwing his colours all around for the trees and birds. Biami then called out in a loud voice and the rain fell heavy with lightning and thunder. When the rain stopped and the mist rose, the great river Dungala was formed, filling the great crevices left by the Rainbow Serpent. The old lady had no problems digging for her yams.

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.
