MIMIH SPIRITS

Gabriel has depicted female Mimih spirits in this dynamic design. According to the Kunwinjku people of western Arnhem Land, Mimih spirits were the original spirit beings, who taught Aboriginal people many of the skills they needed to survive in the bush. They also taught aspects of ceremony. Mimih spirits are believed to inhabit the rocky escarpments around Gunbalanya but because they are extremely timid, they are rarely seen by humans. They are frequently depicted in the rock art of Arnhem Land as small, dynamic figures, often shown with a range of hunting tools such as spears, spear throwers, dilly bags and fire sticks. The designs were created by Injalak artists with the assistance of technician Tim Growcott.

IN STOCK
If your order is in stock it will be shipped to you using Australia post within 5 working days, arriving to you within 12 working days.
PRE-ORDER
If your purchase is on pre-order, it is being crafted by a chain of artisans with an 8 week lead time.
The organic and manual nature of the process endows each piece with its own distinct and beautiful imperfections. And while lead times may be long, they simply reflect and preserve the integrity of the production process: freight and logistics can be hindered by the elements, such as floods that cut off access to remote communities, wet-season humidity that prevents ink from drying, or cultural occasions and ceremonies during which artists do not work.
