The Creator of Law & the Law Enforcer of the Loddon River


The Loddon River runs through the heart of Dja Dja Wurrung Country, Country under the law of Bunjil the Creator. His laws are enforced by Mindye the giant serpent.

In this painting I have used traditional symbols with a realistic twist to depict Bunjil watching over his land from his tree in the mountains. Below, Mindye lies in the Loddon River waiting for those who dare break the laws of the Creator.

The diamonds are a traditional symbol of the Dja Dja Wurrung people, used in art or on shields and weapons. The dots represent the different families of the Dja Dja Warrung people.

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.
