  • This woodcut print by MaryLou Divilli has been inspired by imagery that belongs to the artist and her family. The Alanggun Do (Barramundi) has been depicted in a similar style to that is found painted into the caves at Munja (Marylou's country).

    Marylou talks about the Alanggun Do as a culturally important fish that is prized amoung the Ngarinyin people. She continues to speak about the Munja (walcott inlet) area that has many sites associated with Alanggun Do including a Lailai (dreamtime) story about the Alanggun Do and how it travelled through this country and has left signs of its journey that are still here today.
