Black Bird - Matjin Thurruun

My name is Chern’ee Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from the Mount Isa area in Queensland. Matjin Thurruun in the Kalkadoon language means “Black Bird”.

This painting tells the story of how long, long ago all birds were black and had no colours. They all looked the same except for their shape and size and through selfless actions black bird was magically turned to the beautiful rainbow lorikeet so everyone can now see she is as beautiful on the inside and she is on the outside.
