"Kari peim ge kodal tabaus karim"

In my dream the crocodile shows itself to me.

This represents the two realms, physical and spiritual. The large circle represents the worldly realm and the small circle with the star; the spiritual. The star represents the Tagai constellation which is used for navigation throughout the Torres Strait Islands. This artwork depicts the connection between the real world and the spiritual realm, and the spiritual guidance used in day to day lifestyle of Torres Strait Islander people.
