Cushion Cover Wool 12in (30cm) - "Ngurunderi Looking For His Sons" by Cedric Va"
Artist: Cedric Varcoe
Ngurunderi came down the river with his two sons, who he lost in the scrub after hunting emus with them. He walked around looking for them. When near Kingston S.E. he met an old magic man who had captured his sons. They had a war fight with magic and weapons. Ngurunderi won the fight and burnt the magic man’s body the old way, the flames turned his body into 3 rocks. The rocks are called ‘The Granites’ in English, and can be seen on the Coorong today. Ngurunderi came back along the Coorong, digging water from soakage’s along the way, to Victor Harbour. He made all of that Country.This painting was completed during a developmental workshop with Better World Arts, supported by Arts SA. Cedric experimented with colour and line to evolve his work into a bold and flowing style, saturated with life and passion.
