Gurria & Dhinawun
This work depicts an aspect of the Dreaming Story from my Gamillaroi Country called “How Gugurrgaagaa First Began to Laugh”.
In the story, Gurria the Crocodile viciously chases and eventually devours Dhinawun the female emu, after pursuing her across the dry riverbed.
Dhinawun was eventually released by three brave warriors, cutting open Gurria. Out of Gurria rose the spirit of Dhinawun as a mist, which lifted into the sky to join what we know as the Milky Way.
