Malungu means from the sea in the language Kala Lagaw Ya of the Maluilgal in Zendh Kes. This print shows a couple of hunters returning back to their island after hunting out at sea for Danghal (dugong) and Waru (turtle). The designs in the skies represent Zibazib (sunset) after hunting out at sea all day, or Bani (dawn) in the dark night just before daylight. Both animals were speared using a traditional method, using a wap (harpoon) shown lying over the shoulder of the Buai Garka (hunter). Notice the Kuyurl (darts) speared on the back of both creatures.
