Jeremy Ḏiwiḏiwi Gumana was born in 1975. He comes from the Garinydjingu clan from Gängan Homeland, and his Skin Name is Gudjuk, from the Yirritja Moiety group.
“My Aunt Susan Djuldjul Gurruwiwi and uncle Bruce Wunuŋmurra taught me how to make art and the processes, like cutting off the bark from the trees, painting on bark, didjeridoo, hollow logs and canvas and other things. Also, Robert Ganambarr and family taught me some of the skills that I have.
I like to learn about my culture and totems, and to receive more knowledge.
My favourite art that I like doing is the fish trap and fresh water paintings of my totems”.
This hollow log features a design with Buyku (fish trap) painting belonging to the Yirritja Moiety.
"The fish are called Baypinŋa (Saratoga). The diamonds in the middle of the log represent the water where the fish trap is laying. The coloured diamonds surrounding the fish trap (top and bottom) we call Norrutj. We place paperbark over the fish trap and the colours from the bark create a colourful reflection on the water. The white raak surrounding the hollow log represents the bush string and pandanus weavings holding the fish trap together. The dots surrounding the fish represent the air bubbles from the fish."
Each of these sculptures has a custom fitted, black powdercoated stand included.
