The Artwork Story
Buluru – Garbara (Mangrove Life)
The original artwork by artist Elverina Johnson depicts a traditional “Buluru” (Story Time). ‘Garbara’ is the name for the Mangroves tree which has great cultural significance to the Gunggunji people from Yarrabah region.
The Gungganji Aboriginal people are the traditional owners of the coastal land, islands and waters immediately to the east of Cairns in Far North Queensland, Australia. The Mangroves environment is an important source of food for the Gungganji people. The Mangrove wood is also used to make boomerangs.To learn more about Elverina Johnson click here
