Description

 

 

The Gurirr Gurirr Ceremony is a significant example of evolving Aboriginal culture. This ceremony is a song cycle in which masked dancers hold painted boards to depict the narrative – like a moving picture show. This ceremony came to Rover Thomas in 1974 after the death of his skin mother in a road accident in the wake of the flooding following Cyclone Tracy. Part of the dance cycle involves a Dewari (devil) that guides the spirit of the dead woman as she travels. In this print the Dewari guides us (the dead) on the midday show. The travel is in style by red limo.
