Chern'ee Sutton - This painting is called “Jurutu kutu” which means in the Kalkadoon language “Goanna Egg”. It is my interpretation of the goanna and his never ending hunt for eggs. From the time he is born goanna has a taste for eggs. He can smell them for miles around and can track them for days, going through water and crossing over mountains and land until he comes upon his favourite delicacy.
