‘This Print is About Mokuy (Spirit People).
When Yolŋu die the spirit goes to a place called Balambala at Gangan.
Both spirits for Dhuwa and Yirritja go together.
Same for yindi Garma.
Main area both mokuy mix together for bungul at Garma. At Garma we blow the yidaki (didgeridoo) so Dhuwa and Yirritja mokuy get together.
The plants dance with Dhanbul (morning star) Yirritja dance with Yidaki and Yukuwa (yam).
When I saw the Berndt crayon drawings I felt excited because I had to do this type of work for the first time representing sacred ground at Balambala (Gangan) for Yolŋu and Balanda (non-Yolŋu) to see both Yirritja and Dhuwa moiety together.’
