The Hunter and the Serpent


This is a story that my dad told me back many years ago. The hunter is my dad and the Rainbow Serpent is looking out for my dad and his brothers and sisters. My dad would take his brothers and sisters on a hunt to catch kangaroo, snake and emu, providing food for the family to eat.

My Dad told me and my sisters this story, and showed us how to track and spear animals for food. The story stayed with me for many years and will stay with me. I passed it on to my kids, and my kids can pass it onto their kids!

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.
