Mowanjum - Australia

XLI-5 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

James Nulgit, Mowanjum | Derby, The Kimberley | Australia, 2018

 

For young Aboriginal boys the Walkabout is a rite of passage, a transition from childhood to adulthood. At the age of about 13 they are sent into the wilderness for six months or so to fend for themselves. It is said that in this period they follow the paths of their ancestors who formed the world before changing into natural objects such as rocks and trees. These objects are now sacred places that feature in stories about the Dreamtime, and the stories serve as a roadmap during the Walkabout.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
