About the Artwork

Dugong Dreaming

The traditional colours are natural ochres from the earths surface itself. Deposits of particularly strong white, yellow, red and black were traded between people and are frequently associated with the actions of Dreaming Ancestors.

A certain kind of yellow ochre, for example, is found where the Dreaming Turtle left a deposit of his fat, white ochre may be the faeces of the Rainbow Serpent, and dark brown or red ochre is frequently associated with places where blood was spilt. Black is generally extracted from charcoal of a fired tree bark or campfires, but a beautiful brown-black pigment with a low sheen also occurs in the various deposits of manganese in Eastern Arnhem Land and Groote Eyelandt

About the Artist 

Mayila is a traditional aboriginal artist specialising in crosshatch paintings, designs and didgeridoos inspired by the sacred elements of the Dhalwangu people of Arnhemland.

Tradition

The skills and understanding of painting traditional art has been passed on to Maylia from a very early age by his grandfather and father. He has been inspired by their extensive traditional artwork. They taught him a lot about Aboriginal culture and law, including aboriginal art. His artwork is unique which comes from two Dhalwangu clans: Gumana & Wunungmurra. The two ckans speak the same language even though the surnames are different.

Mayila is from Arnhem Land, cross-hatching paintings and designs are renowned and regarded as a sacred element to the majority of Yolngu (Aboriginal) people of Arnhemland. It is a sacred and symbolic representation – known only by men, regarding initiations, circumcision, ritual ceremonies and any other circumstances that are based on men.

Mayila’s paintings are traditional paintings that are carried from one generation to another in a right and restrictive manner.
