    Canoes were of vital importance in the Torres Strait as they were the only means of transport for trading, hunting, fishing and warfare between the islands, mainland Australia and Papua New Guinea. This print shows a canoe with an outrigger and sail and three sea creatures - dugong, stingray and turtle - that were regularly hunted.
