Djapu patterns


Wandawuy is a homeland for the Djapu clan peoples. The ancestral Shark travelled through this country. The Djapu clans sing, dance and paint the shark. In paintings depicting the shark, it is often painted against a grid like background of designs referring to freshwater billabongs and waterways and the nets and traps used to catch fish.
