Story behind the design:
"Squids…a beautiful translucent and graceful creature with…ahh black ink and memories of it all over my face! One wet season night on Engineers Wharf on Thursday Island (Torres Strait Islands) I celebrated as my husband hooked his first squid. Being a mainland Islander I had yet to experience the spraying of the ink. I was oblivious to the youngsters and my husband stepping away from the bucket as I leaned over to view squid. I was baptized by squid ink that night to the delight of the young ones also fishing during the midnight hours. On another occasion whilst snorkelling on the reef I was studied by a school of some 12 squid. Initially they were hard to spot being translucent creatures. They were observing me like a larger less graceful squiddy thing worth calling in the family to look at. All the while I was thinking of how much my family would love to eat these swimming calamaries!" Francoise Lane
