  • Artist story:
    Maxine is a Yawuru-Bunuba woman based in Broome. She is inspired by the connections between the bundurr-bundurr (pindan lands) and the nagula (saltwater) country of her people. The linygurra (crocodile) shows the incredible pattern of the crocodile skin. The crocodile is a relatively new visitor to Maxine’s country, continuing to move further south as the waters warm.
