Ngakulwanda Ngawijalatha – Our Birth Signs Clock - 2021

30 cm diameter

Acrylic on plywood


"These are the birth signs of my small family; the warrunda (goanna) is mine, the makurrarra (wallaby) is my son, the bangaa (turtle) is my daughter.  My partner is non-indigenous, but we all agree that if his family were Kaiadilt and a birth sign was given, he would most definitely be a Kulkitji (shark)."
