Wal'tjan Dhawu by Judy Lirrinyin
In the style of her father, Binyinyuwuy, Lirririnyin pays homage to the rain. Lirririnyin explains; Its not just the rain in the trees, it’s in our ceremony, songs and dance. I have seen that rain in my country – it makes everything new. We have a ceremony for that Walitjan (rain). All songs and dreams come from that ceremony that we dance in the rain. People cry with that rain. We dance that rain. That paintings not just about the rain – its got everything in it crying, dancing, ceremony, everything is there.
