This Artwork is part of Koskela's current exhibition Spirit in Bark: A Celebration of Bark Art from Across Oceania, featuring a collection of works from Elcho Island Arts, Maningrida Arts & Culture and Omie Artists.
Namorrorddo is a profane spirit sometimes called a 'bad angel' in Aboriginal English.
The Namorrorddo is a yirridjdja moiety being associated with the Yabbadurruwa regional cult ceremony.
Namorrorddo sits upon a rock and is usually painted with long claw like hands and feet. Sometimes spurs protrude from the elbows somewhat like those of a flying fox. Namorrorddo carries light, which emanates from his head. The shooting stars seen at night are Namorrorddo travelling across the night sky.
