Works about this Work

[Review Essay] Gwion Gwion Iain Davidson , 2001 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Aboriginal Studies , no. 2 2001; (p. 68-69)

'This is a remarkable book. Perhaps for the first time, a major body of rock art is documented in the words of the people in whose tradition it was created. Ngarjno, Ungudman , Banggal and Nyawarra, senior elders (munnumburra) of the Ngarinyin people of northwestern Kimberley of Western Australia, worked with filmmaker Jeff Doring who took the sumptuous photographs, associated the edited munnumburra songs and narratives with the images and provides a small number of linking observations which place the words and pictures into a wider context. Banggal is better known to rock-art students and others by another name, that is not used here, for his involvement in the discussions about the repainting of rock art (Ward 1997). (Introduction)
