Art work Description:
This sculpture depicts Limmin (cuttlefish) and when it swims it creates a movement which is represented in the wave pattern in the middle of this piece. The little patterns represent the forming of life and microscopic patterns represent the forming of the reef which is home to Limmin. Further than this, it represents an ancestral spirit being who is a custodian or guardian of the reef. He looks out over the reef and protects the area. As a custodian, he also represents an authority over the laws of the Yirritja people. In another sense, he may be described as a guardian angel. The physical being of the sculpture represents “a belief you can hold” – the belief is within a person but the sculpture allows a concrete manifestation which people can see and touch, especially at ceremonial occasions.
