Michael Gilsenan is an Australian Indigenous artist with connections to Stephen Island in the Torres Strait and the Yidinji people of Far North Queensland. For him, the turtle is an important symbol of life in that region. It has a practical use, as food, but also cultural and spiritual significance as a reminder of a balanced and respectful relationship between people and the ocean.
