The Artwork:  The turtles in the reproduction of the traditional painting “Colours of the Reef” represent the life forces of the turtle and the vivid colours of the circles symbolise the colours of the reef and ocean. Every breeding season, female turtles return to the same beach where they themselves hatched. After laying up to 100 eggs in the warm sand, the mother turtle’s work is done and she then leaves her eggs to incubate. The tiny turtles finally push up virtually in unison at night and head for the light coming from the ocean.
 
The Artist:  Colin Jones was born in 1947 in Queensland Australia, and is of Kaladoon and Nunuckle tribal descent. As a young boy, Colin learned to paint from his grandfather. Colins multi-layered dot paintings tell the stories of his ancestral lands, where the rain forest, rivers and land connect. In these depictions, there are small foot and hand prints telling the stories of Aboriginal people roaming the land.
