Frank & Beryl Saunders

Main Image
Frank & Beryl Saunders

Frank Saunders is a descendant of theGunggari people which occupied the Maranoa River area of western Queensland for many years prior to European settlement.  Although Frank Saunders belonged to the owing clan of his grand-father, he received his totem from his mother and mother's brothers.  Totems were stressed during initiation, marriage and burial ceremonies.
Because the hand (Maranoa) was so important to the Gunggari people's way of life, numerous hands were stenciled in the Tombs Rock shelter on the Upper Maranoa River.
Frank chose Maranoa as a fitting reminder of his ancestral people.
The artist's wife now receives royalties from the sale of these products as Frank is now deceased.
Beryl Saunders and their daughter Lee Evans are also artists and have designs in our range.
