" Fresh Water Turtle" - Kathy Bobongie
Home: Daly River
Kathy is a descendent of the Marrathiel people of the Daly River, NT region. She is a traditional owner and her family has established an outstation called Delye. The Marrathiel people are predominantly freshwater people and their land does not extend to the sea.
The painting shows some of the bush food and the long and short neck freshwater turtle. Turtles are a good source of protein and fat in the diet. The lily flower is a rich source of food with crunchy stems, petals like salad vegetables and the creamy tasting yellow centre. Lily pod seeds have a nutty flavour. The background colour of blue depicts the water. Some of the other colours are traditional colours used in aboriginal paintings.
