Bringing DHUWA to Life
Artist Jyi Lawton created our beautiful artwork, titled Story of Mundgarra – Rainbow Serpent. A descendent of the Bidjara people in Central Queensland, Jyi was inspired by the vibrant sandstone cliff of Carnarvon Gorge in the central highlands of Queensland. The long, sinuous form throughout the painting represents the rainbow serpent Mundgarra, one of the creation ancestors. Mundgarra created the cliffs, mountains and rivers of Carnarvon Gorge and embodies the true sense of DHUWA.
