Description

Keeping the Wanjinas Fresh: Sam Woolagoodja and the Enduring Power of Lalai is the story of the people of the Wanjinas and their unbroken living cosmology of Lalai- the Dreaming- manifested most memorably in the dazzling giant Wanjina designed by Donny Woolagoodja for the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics


It is also the story of Sam Woolagoodja, who was responsible for repainting the sacred Wanjinas in many of the rock shelters that dot the Kimberley landscape, and was among the first to paint the sacred stories on bark and board for Worrorra children living far from their homelands
