Goanna Dreaming 2001

Jacinta Numina-Waugh
Goanna Dreaming 2001
Screenprint

Northern Editions feature print

The path of a black sand goanna as depicted in this screenprint by Stirling Station artist and printmaker Jacinta Numina-Waugh conveys a sense of travel and distance. Surrounding the goanna are its own footprints, with some of them showing the marks left by the longer nails of its back feet, while the circular motif on its back denotes the importance of the goanna as a source of bush food in desert Australia.

Jacinta Numina-Waugh was born at Stirling Station in central Australia. Upon graduating in Visual Arts from Charles Darwin University, Jacinta successfully completed a traineeship with Northern Editions and was appointed as a full-time printmaker in August 2004.

This print is available for purchase through Northern Editions, for enquiries please call 89466325 or email
