The designer: Gabriel Maralngurra
Gabriel has been one of the driving forces of Injalak Arts since its beginnings as an Adult Education course in screenprinting in 1986. An accomplished artist, Gabriel has many skills including painting, screenprinting on tshirts, posters and fabric. Gabriel attributes much of his artistic education to Thompson Yulidjirri (dec).

The design:
Female Mimih spirits are depicted in this dynamic design. According to the Kunwinjku people Mimih spirits were the original spirit beings who taught Aboriginal people many of the skills they needed to survive in the bush. They also taught aspects of ceremony. Mimih spirits inhabit the rocky escarpments around Gunbalanya but because they are extremely timid are rarely seen by humans. Often seen in the rock art of West Arnhem Land as small, dynamic figures, usually shown with hunting tools such as spears, spear throwers, dilly bags and fire sticks. Mimih spirits do many of the same things people do, and according to the artist the Mimih spirits in this design are “just having fun”, chatting, dancing and singing.
