TRIBUTE TO THE MIMI SPIRITS

 

MiMi figures are small stick-like spirits. They are said to live in bush and rock crevices in Arnhem Land in the very North of Australia. They are regarded as great artists because they like painting their portraits in red ochre on rocks!

Mimi spirits are not Creator Beings, but they taught the Ancestors of the present-day Gunwinggu tribe the art of painting.

Mimi spirits can be enchanting creatures, but one must realise they can be malevolent as well as benevolent.

As a painter I wished to create a tribute to the Mimi spirits for giving human beings the art of painting!
