ABOUT THE ARTWORK:

Kunkurra, 2015 ©Janet Marawarr / Licensed by Copyright Agency.

This work depicts the kunkurra, the spiralling wind associated with several sites in the Kardbam clan.

The artwork has two stories. First, it shows the kinds of mini-cyclones common during the wet season in Arnhem Land. Secondly, Kunkurra relates specifically to a site called Bilwoyinj, near Mankorlod, on Janet’s husband’s clan estate. At this site, two of the most important Kuninjku creation beings, a father and son known as nakorrkko, are believed to have hunted and eaten a goanna. They left some of the goanna fat behind at the site, which turned into the rock that still stands there today.
