The imagery depicted in the works is a contemporary interpretation of the old patterning or Minar seen incised into these traditional objects.
The artist wished to base the designs around nature and has chosen birds, animals and totems that are common to his island of Badu. In so doing he has made them place specific, just like the traditional combs made hundreds of years ago that would identify them as belonging to a particular clan or island.
The Kodal or crocodile depicted is one of the totems of the artist’s island of Badu.
