About Jalala & Wandjinas
The circles are Jalala - boundary stones or burial stones. My old dad passed away this year. These stories my old dad told me.
Im now carrying it on, in my own painting style. The Wandjina spirits are highly respected by the Wororra, Ngarinyin and Wunumbul people who live at Mowanjum and up the Gibb River Rod to Kalumburu in the NW Kimberley region. We believe that the Wandjinas brought law and culture and language to the people to abide by.These customs are carried on today. The Wandjina is our identity. Where you see a lot of wandjinas they represent the laws of tree, rocks, bush fruit and animals ,all creation. The Wandjinas give the law on how we have to treat and use these creations.
