$1,200.00 (Incl GST)


This is my image Hanapi – (Making Ready), is to represent our belief systems around requesting strength, knowledge and seasonal weather by speaking to our Zugubal - Ancestor’s. A well ranked warrior is portrayed standing in a ‘Protective Stance’ – Hanapi. Nuiy Kula - Sibanu-Sika – (He stands in full confidence) to face whatever come his way.

Nugnu Kulasib – His strength, power and confidence are magnetised into him as one from the Ya-thayarn - (Troughing of talk) to the Mariw Danaka – (Zugubal/Spirtual Acesstors) and his peoples Totems, (Hammer head shark, Dugong, Spinny Ray, Sucker fish, and Turtle) totemic spiritual traits running into his being.
