Mimi and Ancestral figure (lightning man).
Natural ochres on eucalyptus bark. Typical painting from the 80's from the western region in Arnhem Oenpelli land. Very often the painted bark of this region represents the cave paintings of the region. The ancestor represented is very rare because he holds a net with a fighting stick.
