Worrwurr – Brass Owl

Size: 8 x 3cm
Year: 2019 Edition of 50

This is the first series of worrwurr (owls) sculpted in wood by Djul’djul and then cast in brass.

The worrwurr belongs to the Yirritja moiety and is an important totem.

Dhuḏuthuḏu is the name for the frog-mouth which is from the Dhuwa moiety.

Datiwuy and Ngaymil sing this bird dhuḏuthuḏu (Podargus Strigoides) together and it joins their two clans. They also connect to Gälpu and Djambarrpuyŋu through this law. Its country is near Yaŋunbi and is known as Warrathiri or Munumbal. Elders have said that it is not deep law but just something that they sing and dance.
