Gapu Monuk

Gapu-Monuk are words from the Yolŋu matha language, of North-East Arnhem Land. Gapu (water), monuk (salt), describes Saltwater

The exhibition featured Yirrkala bark paintings, created by 47 Yolŋu artists who petitioned for sea rights by painting their Sea Countries onto bark and revealing sacred patterns or designs, known as Miny’tji. We hope you'll enjoy this selection of gifts related to the exhibition and the ideas it explores.
