Margaret Kerinauia Yirrikapayi Turwarra - Crocodile Tail 2008
Natural ochre on canvas
900 x 1200mm

There is an old Tiwi story about that man Yirrikapayi who used to live at Cape Fourcroy. He used to make old ceremonial spears. He jumped off the cliff and took his spears with him. He made such a noise his mouth turned into a long snout and his spears became a tail. He became a salt water crocodile. We call him Yirrikapayi.
