The print is part of the series "Kun-waral: Spirit Shadows / Ombres d'Esprit" (*):

For the first time, artists from the Bábbarra Women's Center have created limited edition art prints. The artists carved their own woodblocks and created their own etching plates, during a workshop with Jacqueline Gribbin and Sean Smith in February 2019. The prints were edited by Jacqueline Gribbin in her studio in Darwin (Australia).

Kun-waral refers to the shadow or memory of powerful beings who transformed during their travels through the earth before the arrival of humans. These beings include Bawaliba (Spirits), Ngalyod (Rainbow Serpent), Buluwana, Djomi (Freshwater Mermaid), Mimi and Mongerrd. The artists only illustrate the beings of which they are the cultural guardians and for which they have family authorizations.

For the first time, the artists from Bábbarra Women's Center have created limited edition fine art prints. The artists carved their own woodblocks and created their own etching plates, during a workshop with Jacqueline Gribbin and Sean Smith in February 2019.

Kun-waral refers to the shadow or memory of powerful beings who transformed as they moved across country, before humans arrived. These beings include Bawaliba (Spirits), Ngalyod (Rainbow Serpent), Buluwana, Djomi (Freshwater Mermaid), Mimi and Mongerrd. The artists only illustrate figures they have the cultural custodianship and family permissions to depict.
