Nadjinem the Black Rock Wallaby

In this image, Galareya has painted nadjinem, one of the many animals found in the “stone” or rocky country of western Arnhem Land, in the Northern Territory of Australia. Nadjinem, the male black rock wallaby, is shown here, painted in the classic Kunwinjku “x-ray” style with internal organs showing. This usually indicates the particular animal is game rather than holding spiritual significance for the artist. Anthony Murphy Art Coordinator Anthony Murphy Art Coordinator
