COVER ARTWORK This year’s cover is the artwork Apu Kaz, by Warraber Island artist Tony Harry, for which he was voted as joint recipient of the People’s Choice Award, for the 2012 Gab Titui Indigenous Art Award. In describing the artwork, Mr Harry said: “Our connection to our land and sea in the Torres Strait is very important. Early days in the community, families survived living off our land and sea. Dhangal (dugong) is one of the main food sources for us Torres Strait Islanders. “The land and sea is a significant part of our life. Since we were born we see the environment, our resources come from the sea and land. “It was my connection to the land and sea, past, present, and future today. I am proud to identify myself, to point to the sea and land where I come from. “This artwork represents mainly the bond, relationship and respect we have towards each other, our land and sea. Hunters in the early days would maintain and share their catch equally among the whole community. There was unity in the community and families were blessed with more. “The dugong has many meanings to me – dugong is my meat, dugong is my oil, dugong is my medicine. “The shark is a totem for people of the Torres Strait. It represents us in present days being the predator for our dugongs and turtles. Hunters hunt as many as they can without considering our future generations.” Enquiries about Mr Harry’s artwork can be made by contacting the artist directly at tharry32@hotmail.com or by contacting the Gab Titui Cultural Centre. Customary Law Notice: The Image embodies traditional knowledge of the Warraber Island community. It was created with the consent of the custodians of the community. Dealing with any part of it for any purpose that has not been authorised by the custodians is a serious breach of the customary laws of the Warraber Island community, and may also breach the Australian Copyright Act 1968 (Cth).
