Barayuwa Munuŋgurr paints his own Djapu designs as well as the Munyuku clan designs of his mother Bengitj’s homeland, Yarrinya. Yarrinya is also the motherland of his paternal grandfather, Wonggu Munuŋgurr. The vibrant patterns that characterise much of Barayuwa’s work originate from his mother’s Munyuku clan designs. They recall an ancestral story that took place on the Yarrinya saltwater estate, in which Munyuku spirit men hunt their own brother, a whale called Mirinyuŋu.
