Torres Strait Dauareb elder, Segar Passi’s shark artwork is inspired by seven stars in the big dipper and big bear (Ursa Major) constellation which make up the body of a deep-sea predator. The shark’s position in the sky indicates when to plant crops and the timing of seasonal storms. Stardreaming is a three-coin series that showcases indigenous astronomical stories.
