Artwork Story

Notes:
This print is available individually or as part of the Bardayal Bim folio of ten etchings. The price of the Bardayal Bim Folio is $18,500.

Wamud has depicted an Aboriginal woman (Daluk) and an Aboriginal man (Binninj). In the days before white-man came with horses, wagons and later automobiles, Kunwinjku people used to travel on foot hundreds of kilometers to visit family and participate in ceremonies. They would travel for days across rocky escarpment and thick bushlands, the daluk (women) collecting bush tucker which they would carry in dilly bags (seen in the painting), and the binninj (men) hunting animals. All this would be carried with them as gifts for the hosts.

This plate was created by the artist in 2006 and was printed and signed by the artist prior to his passing. It has also been authenticated with the Injalak Arts & Crafts Association Inc stamp on the back bottom left corner.
