Pakup Yallandar (Fire Stick Sunset)
Medium: Acrylic on Linen
Dimensions: 1200mm x 1700mm
This is the fire stick called Pakup Yallandar. It’s used for starting a fire by causing friction.
What I like about this painting is there is a meaningful similarity between the fire and the sunset. Same colours. Same calming effect. Colours of the sunset and the fire are the most marvellous colours to have in your mind before sleep.
There are five in my family, but there are six fire sticks. I put an extra fire stick in to represent the wonderful animals in my life that bring me so much joy.
