Barkindji, Meaning ‘River Mob’


This beautiful painting is about five brothers of the Paakantyi/Barkindji tribe; it is their story. The five people at the bottom of the painting represent loyalty, love for one another, and strength in togetherness. They love their culture and being spiritual Koories. The two circles on either side of the painting represent the two towns where they live, and the cross-hatching represents the land. The butterflies are their totems and the ‘C’ shapes are the brothers waiting to be reincarnated into butterflies. One brother is playing the didgeridoo out of respect for his four brothers and his beautiful land of Barkindji, meaning ‘river mob’.
