For the story about Australian outlaw Ned Kelly (1855-1890) it is best to turn to Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org).
"In the first print of the Kelly series Ned and his mother Ellen are shown in a blank field that represents the family on their little selection of land. The black shape is of course based on Ned Kelly's iconic helmet. The two shapes are complimentary opposites, where white and black does not necessarily signify right and wrong. Ned was not all bad and Ellen was not all good. In a historical perspective
Ned Kelly is seen as both a hero and a villain."
