This gorgeous painting depicts the story of the skin of the Mountain Thorny Devil Lizard.
The lizard is said to change colours in the desert as the sun rises and sets and the dew catches upon their skin reflecting the ability of the Mountain Thorny Devil Lizard to change from plain to vivid colours.
A very detailed work created by a series of dots in white on a black canvas. Visually stunning. It captures a feeling of gentle transition and movement, a very beautiful painting.
