My image of the Kaitherr Gub (the wind before the rain) the kaitherr Gub is the wind that blows at the turn of the tide, when the outgoing tide turns into the upcoming tide. This change in the weather brining on the kaitherr gub followed by shattered show rains. My design in this print represents the incoming tides and the outgoing tides. Kukiw Nuki Urr (RAIN WATER ALONG THE COAST) This image of an octopus spreading its tentacle’s imitating the rivers that are busting and over flowing after the monsoon thunder storms the rain water spills out along islands coasts causing Kukiw Nuki Urr sea water to temporally dilute this happening pushing the bait fish out into open water bringing in the squid, stingrays and sea mullet. Fish food are plenty at this time of year, islanders know what fish, where and when to go fishing.
