Stingray Dreaming
Singleton, Patricia

"This image is from a painting that depicts the rebirth of the stingray as not only a food source it also had medicinal and cultural purposes for our people. Yirrganydji and Gurabana/Saltwater people, traditional country Cairns to Port Douglas since time immemorial. The stingray isprepared for eating carefully as it can be poisonous if cut the wrong way. The barbs were used to make hunting spears. Some of the stories can be passed down, others must be kept within the family." (Patricia Singleton).

This work is a Gobo light projection installed in 2016.
