Photographer's Note

Kakadu National Park.
This huge park of exceptional beauty is located in Australia's tropical north.
Kakadu is a cultural landscape. It was shaped by the spiritual ancestors of Aboriginal people during the Creation Time.
Aborigines have lived in Kakadu for at least 25,000 years (perhaps as long as 50,000 years).
This World Heritage listed park characterised by exceptional galleries of Aboriginal art and diverse and fascinating wildlife.
Rock art is an important part of Aboriginal people's lives.
The Kakadu NP has some of the finest examples of X-ray art in the world. This style of art is fascinating because in it the artist not only paints what he can see from the outside but also depicts what he knows exists on the inside.
This is the painting of Nabulwinjbulwinj - a dangerous spirit who eats females after striking them with a yam.

You like him, don't you?
