'To take advantage of laxity in any prey species ...'
'Lindy listens to her counsel'
'The Verdict - GUILTY!'
This drawing depicts the dramatic moment when Lindy Chamberlain was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment.
Lindy's face is made the focal point as the most detailed part of the drawing, along with the heavy black lines and the pink of her dress.
She would stay in prison until 7 February 1986, when the discovery of the Azaria's matinee jacket proved that she had been telling the truth about what Azaria had been wearing and why there wasn't more evidence of a dingo on the jumpsuit. It instigated the royal commission that was held into the case and finally the complete exoneration of the Chamberlains.
