About this product
Located 700km east of Darwin in Yirrkala, a small Aboriginal community in North Eastern Arnhem Land, Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre is a First Nations owned and run hub of creativity. Prints & Poles is a showcase of this creativity, featuring an array of larrakitj and works on paper including a selection of etchings, which highlight the culturally rich and diverse practice of Yolŋu artists.
Buku-Larrŋgay – “the feeling on your face as it is struck by the first rays of the sun”
Mulka – “a sacred but public ceremony”
This print was made as part of the Paul Machnik workshop held at Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre print studio in 2013. Using a technique new to the art centre – aluminum plates with a malleable white ground medium etched in a copper sulphate batch – the artist drew two contemporary images, one of the sun setting and one of the sun rising. Walu means sun and the Yolngu call the rays of the sun Wana which translates into English as arms.
