Eagle - Karrkanyi
My name is Chern’ee Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from Mount Isa in Queensland. This painting is called “Karrkanyi” which means “eagle” in the Kalkadoon language.
This painting is my interpretation of the eagle and her journey through life. Karrkanyi flies high above Kalkadoon country keeping a watchful eye on the mountains, rivers, waterholes and land.
