Artwork Description:

The traditional seasonal calendar of life in Zenadth Kes is reflected by the changes in the environment and moves through cycles of abundance and scarcity, renewal and harvest, wet and dry. 

The Islander’s understanding of the stars, the seasons, the weather, the winds, and the currents aid them in both navigation across the treacherous Strait by night and identifying appropriate times to gather, nurture or avoid food plants and animals. In Islander mythology, celestial beings known as Zugubal, who are powerful spirits influence the environment, which in turn sets the course and rhythm for community life, allowing the winds and tides to set the pace.
