Alick Tipoti Mawa Wagel #4/50 2007
550 x 1000 image, 810 x 1210mm paper

Mawa Wagel means Mawa (mask) after or later. I try to capture how I would have created this mask had I not been influenced by today's modern, western society. Such masks were usually carved out of a certain tree that we call Wapadh that grows on most of the island in the Torres Strait.
