In this composition, Malesku takes her inspiration from British artist Damien Hirst's Dot prints and combines them with a First Nations Salmon Egg design. The result is a great mix of First Nations art and contemporary pop culture.
Salmon is fundamental to all coastal peoples, and is a symbol of regeneration, health and life. Many myths tell of people taken to the undersea world of the Salmon and return with secret knowledge and powers. Salmon have always been viewed as the life force for Indigenous communities. Salmon is often represented by scales, small fins and striated tail fin.
