Description - Yorro Yorro by David Mowaljarlai

Aboriginal Elder David Mowaljarlai and photographer Jutta Malnic rekindle a story that constitutes the oldest collective memory of humankind. Yorro Yorro tells of Wandjina creation spirits and their `crossing over' into ancestral beings and then eventually into human form.

Yorro Yorro translated from Ngarinyin means `everything standing up alive'. It follows the journey of original creation in the Kimberley and renewal of nature. Yorro Yorro is a testament to the extraordinary collective knowledge of the Wandjina peoples of the Kimberley.
