Hollow log by Mandy Batjula Gaykamangu
The Dja’nkawu sisters gave us Miku (red), Watharr (white) and Buthjalak (yellow) ochre colors for us to paint with. We use them for the Ngarra ceremony, which is a cleansing ceremony, performed when people die. We also have Nyuka (crab), Gudumurrku (fresh water cat fish), Bwarta (turkey), Ngatili (black cockatoo) and the Worrudj (colorful parrot).
Ochre on wood, 171 x 15 cm
