Take Away (Chicken)
Mounted acrylic on canvas artwork by Di Taylor.
Embedded in local folklore is the story of police discovering bushranger Frank Thomas' camp where he was cooking a stolen chicken. He leapt onto his horse and took off, with the police following in hot pursuit. The police eventually lost sight of him so decided they'd return and enjoy his fire-roasted chook. When they arrived back at Frank's camp he'd already doubled back, taken the chicken and left again!
