Description

This is a saltwater story belonging to the artist’s Gupapuyŋu clan. One Gaṉanhdharr (White Heron) was looking for fish in an area with seaweed. This Gaṉanhdharr showed him where to find fish. The fish painted on the bird’s body is a Ginyginy (Catfish). Gaṉanhdharr and Ginyginy belong to the Yirritja moiety.
