Sharon Coomerang The Swordfish & The Sly Old Barramundi 2003
Acrylic on Galacia linen 600 x 1210mm $4400
When the rain would come it always filled the gorge up with water and the river would flow down to the ocean. At the end of the gorge
there was a big hole where all the swordfish would wait for the barramundi. One day a swordfish and a barramundi had a fight over an
octopus. The barramundi put spinifex on his nose and speared the swordfish. The swordfish got mad and his nose grew long and spikey.
That's how come today the swordfish has spikes on his nose.
