Stingrays were not just an important part of my ancestor’s traditional food.
Their barbs could be used as a knife to cut meat and their skeletal remains were used for fashioning spearheads.
This painting is about a group of stingrays I saw swimming in the shallows while walking along Kings Beach.
The lines on the stingrays represent the way they undulate their bodies like a wave glimmering in the sunlight.
