The Artwork Story
This artwork by Yarrabah, North Queensland artist Elverina Johnson is from her “Life in the Reef” series. It depicts a traditional “Buluru” (Story Time).
“Wiwi Mundu Murrba” means “Heart, Spirit and Breath under the Water”. The story describes the life and breath of the ocean and the reef and all that is alive in it. The reef is the heart of the sea and without it, the life in the ocean will not survive. The Gungganji Aboriginal people have long depended on the reef as a source of food and life.
