Jean Baptiste Apuatimi Jirtaka (Sawfish) 2011
Ochre on linen
1220 x 1530mm

"Jirtaka is lovely tucker. My husband used to get that fish and bring him home. After we eat that fish we get that bone and paint him up. First black, then Jilamara (body paint design). The first painting my husband did was on that bone. I like to paint this because my husband taught me." This painting was also a finalist in the 2011 Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Awards.
