Marmmudak Woman

Paddy Fordham Wainburranga
Marmmudak Woman
lithograph

Northern Editions feature print

In this lithograph, Paddy Fordham has depicted a Marmmudak woman, a giant female Mimi spirit from the Dreamtime who travelled the land while carrying her husband in the palm of her hand.

 

The Marmmudak woman was very big and powerful, and her image can still be seen on rock paintings at Oenpelli.

 

Paddy Fordham Wainburranga is an award-winning artist from the Bulman/Beswick region of south-eastern Arnhem Land. In 1993 he was the overall winner of the Telstra Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award, and he is noted for his idiosyncratic style that incorporates local mythology with contemporary and historical events.
