Shaun Norman Kinebulla (Paddy Melon) Dreaming 2007
Natural ochre & pigment on canvas 630 x 1165mm $1500
Kinebulla was gathered up Emu. Took it across to Goojinga law place for ceremony - initiation for all the young boys and subincision -
that's in the law place. They sang Goojinga all the night to daylight. And Emu brought all the food for them - Kinebulla - and fed them.
Everyone was dressed all in red ochre and the white ochre was used for the forehead band - called kalumbung. They pissed on the hot
coal to make the steam come up to cure the pain after the subincision.
