SESERE 

This print is based on a legend of a young Badu Island man who is known as Sesesre in his wisdom, developed the hunting spear and the method in which to track and get a successful hunt of a dugong and turtle.

Due to a confrontation with other villages on Badu Island he in fear for his life changed form from human to bird hide in a Bu-shell before flying off to freedom.

Sesesre still today calls out at a certain time of year as the monsoons are about to arrive boosting of his escape.

He calls “nagi Sesere ngai sesere” iam sesere iam sesere…
