He Who Looks After His Own
At a distance from the settlement was a great mountain which at times appeared like a giant frog. It seemed to be a protective force over the settlement and sometimes cloud-shapes embraced the mountain like a great white bird, a God-figure in Aboriginal Mythology. The egg-shape, hanging in its own space, is indicative of birth. The rectangular yellow panel brings that side of the canvas to the fore giving additional perspective. The structural architectures of the frog and the mountain are combined.
