This piece of work is called Baadhu.

Baadhu is also known as Mulgrave Island aka Badu Island. Baadhu was once a battle field for neighouring islands that fought each other for Baadhu which had plenty access to food in the sea, food grown on the land and plentyful of water either bores or creeks.

This art piece I have detailed also something special to me.

The Thupmul also known as 'Thorny Ray' that represent the Argun Clan for my Grandmother side from my Mother side. The Dhangal also know as Sea Cow (Dugong) can be found near Baadhu.

The Pattern below represent unity and one of the pattern in this art piece represents me and my siblings.
