Spear Trees

Yondee Shane Hansen

Artwork Year



77 x 186 cm


acrylic on canvas


Yondee explains this painting: “The stems of the tree are used for spears and they are chosen for their straightness, height and strength. They are from the eucalyptus mallee gums that are found all over the SouthWest of Western Australia and across into South Australia.

The wood is worked over on the fire, not only to straighten it but also to harden it.”

Yondee was born 1964, south of Perth. He has

been painting since his childhood and has had

many exhibitions locally and internationally.
