Where the Murchison River meets the sea. 3rd State VE 1/10

Colleen’s design depicts memory of Nhanda people camping on the river, near the sea, with the tracks and fresh water places people used along the river in the lower right hand side. It is a very detailed carving, showing “a lot of people, camping everywhere. We knew the water places, where to get the fresh water because the river is tidal and salty. ”

This print is planned and registered in the same way as the 1st state,  but the plates are pressed simultaneously, instead of passing through the press twice. It has a smoother texture than first and second state. Its a matter of personal preference whether you like (and appreciate the extra time) of the second press to create a textured shadow.
