This superbly rendered painting features a detailed depiction of a rusted buoy lying on a bed of natural shells and golden sand.

The washing up of this rusty old mooring buoy on a pristine coastline is a metaphor for the invasion of Aboriginal land by outsiders from an already industrialised and degraded world.
