“Barramundi are one of the animals that are now not just hunted by Indigenous people, we all share that love of hunting them. It’s the big totem fish in the creeks. When you go up the creek you’ve got fish and then you’ve got barramundi, they are the boss fish.
The mussels featured in the artwork are found in the same area. When we find mussels in the mangroves, we know that once the tide comes in there’s going to be barramundi around that area. In the artwork you can also see a fish spear, which is the traditional way of hunting barramundi.” - Robert Levi
