Honey Ant - Igan Iti

My name is Chern’ee Sutton old and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from the Mount Isa area in Queensland. This painting is called “Igan Iti” in the Kalkadoon language which means “Honey Ant”.

My painting is my interpretation of the honey ant and his life. The honey ant stores food for his brothers and sisters inside his belly until such a time that food is scarce, he then keeps his family alive by sharing his stored food with them. The honey ant is a delicacy to the Kalkadoon people who dig the ants from the rich red soil and use them as a source of food.
