The Artwork Story
Barramundi Waterhole (Bandjin Translation: Wurri-Gulla Yinari)
This painting is Justin Butler’s interpretation of barramundi fish (Wurri-Gulla) hunting small fish in a waterhole (Yinari). When the barramundi stalks the small fish, it follows its movements from below and strikes in an upwards motion causing an audible “boof” sound. The white and silver circles depict the water prints caused by barramundi. By listening for the distinctive sound and reading the water prints, one can tell if the barramundi is present in the waterhole without seeing the fish itself.
