Description

Apu Kaz is a term commonly used for a dugong mother and calf. The hunters of Zenadh Kes (Torres Strait) know many secrets about the dugong and have a very special relationship with these marine mammals. Very little of this information is shared with people outside of Zenadh Kes. The calf depicted in this print is at the stage in its development when it is about to feed on its own and fend for itself. The mother is showing the calf how to dive deeply in the strong current. The patterning represents the many different currents that flow through the islands of which the people have intimate knowledge and respect.
