Coral Reef

Artwork Year

acrylic on canvas


In this painting Yondee Shane Hansen depicts the coral reef to indicate the traditional uses of this natural resource employed by Aboriginal people. The coral reef is important to the ecosystem of the oceans, as it protects and preserves fish, acting as a kind of nursery for young fish as they grow. It also relates to the Whale Dreaming story of the south-west, where the Dreaming or Creation story follows the locations of the reef.

Yondee was born 1964, south of Perth. He has been painting since his childhood and has had many exhibitions locally and internationally.
