The Wandjina art tradition is central to the creation of humanity and the entire physical and spiritual world for indigenous people of the Kimberley region of Australia. It is the world's oldest unbroken spiritual art tradition dating back to around 15,000yrs possibly more.
On a recent trip to visit my brother in Kununurra we stopped to help a couple of frantic Roman honeymooners unbog their hired 4WD from the sand. Once they had driven off we sat down for a picnic in the shade before climbing a nearby rock to find a butterfly filled cave lined in Wandjina paintings. It was truly awe inspiring.
