Jean Baptiste Apuatimi Tunga 2009
Ochre on paper
77 x 57cm framed under glass

Pumpuni Jilamara - This means good painting in the early days. Tunga for basket, when they go out and get crab, mussels and palm in the water, they carry tunga on the back with long stick. I make this one like jirtaka - the swordfish. My husband paint up that bone for ceremony. He pukumani one. He put that bone in the tunga. Old way.
