Exhibition Catalogue

Description:
“There are two quicksand holes at Kinoedjanga. It’s a dangerous place, people can’t go there. Country will smell your different sweat and drown you, it’ll kill you. The sea eagles watch over those holes, one black and one white, duwa and yidditja. The white eagle is djungkay for that place, he looks after it. They sit on gungarnin (digging sticks). Miparr is my djarno. The eagles travelled from Gupanga, Wurdeja and all the way to Malnjangarnak.” - David Brian
