Christine Holroyd  —  ‘My Grandpas Body Paint’


I remember my old people. When I was young they all had scarring from initiation on their bodies. Every clan group had their own pattern. I remember my old people painting their bodies with red and white ochre. They painted their bodies every day. You knew what clan group belonged to because of the pattern they painted on their bodies. Nowadays we still paint up only when we dance.

Michael Mungula — ‘Gapuwiyak (Lake Evella)’

Milingimbi Art and Culture – 2022

This is a Gupapuyŋu clan story which the artist’s father Tom Djäwa also painted. The central circle represents both an emu nesting ground and the lake of Gapuwiyak. Emu (Wurrpaṉ) tracks lead to and from the nest within the vertical and horizontal bands. The Wurrpaṉ’s food (yukuwa) bush berries is also represented. These elements are all part of Gupapuyŋu yaraŋu (public) cosmology.
