ABOUT THE ARTWORK:
Barnkabarra, 2010 ©Elizabeth Wullunmingu / Licensed by Copyright Agency
These images are not to be reproduced without the approval of the licensor.
This design tells the story of Elizabeth’s homeland, east of Maningrida, at the mouth of Blyth river. Many families go to that country to collect crabs, hunting in mangrove holes with long sticks, or spearing the crabs directly on the shore. Mud crabs hide in the muddy bottoms of estuaries and mangrove forests in areas surrounding Maningrida. After a king tide, a large cyclical tide which bring the crabs out from the mangroves, it is the perfect time to find crabs.
Rrugurrgurda (mud crabs) is pronounced Ahh-rewg-gurd-gurda in the Burarra language. Rrugurrgurda are good baladji (bush food in Burarra) and can be caught all year round. They are put on the fire to cook and they are ready when they turn a bright orange colour. 
 

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Elizabeth was born in Darwin. She started sewing and designing at Bábbarra in 2010 and is a key member of the sewing team.
Elizabeth artistic talent comes from her mother who was an artist for the iconic Desert Designs label. Elizabeth designed and sewed outfits for the 2018 Commonwealth Games!
Her ancestor spirits are Rrugurrgurda (Crab) and Jin-Merdawa (Saltwater Mermaid).
