#Apu Kaz (Mother and baby Dugong)

Nona’s Apu Kaz is a mother and baby dugong. The work is comprised of two bronze sculptures, both intricately carved. The mother dugong is carved with a traditional constellation story about how the night sky shows the best time for hunting. Covered in intricate carvings, the sculpture reflects the traditional obsession with mark making typical of the arts and crafts of the Torres Strait. UAP assisted Nona to extend his practice from carving to casting in metal.

Dennis Nona is represented by the Australian Art Print Network and Art Mob. 

UAP is proud to have funded the first edition of this work.
