Alick Tipoti, Maza Mawa (Wapiya) I, Torres Strait Islander art

Maza Mawa (Wapiya) I

This mawa tells a story about the male spiritual ancestors going out on the reef to spear fish. The face in the middle is the storyteller. The sharp ends on both sides of the masks represent the fish tail. The cut out wavy edges are the ripples on the sea created by a slight breeze. We call this Kaydheral.
