Dhakiyarr by Sally McColl

Currently unavailable for purchase

Oil on Canvas.
This was the beginning of a much larger painting. I think its almost more powerful in this raw state.
Dhakiyarr was a strong leader of his people up in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia in the early part of last century and it was his strength in protecting his family that ultimately led to his early death.
