Known alternatively in English as Sea Cow, Mantuwujini are hunted with harpoon spears along the northern coast of the Tiwi Islands, found in areas of sea grass, where they graze. A gentle and sadly endangered mammal, the animal is prized for it’s tender rich flavoured meat and the fat produces oil which is reputed to be good for the hair.

This is a hard ground etching with aquatint made by the artist in collaboration with Masterprinter Basil Hall during a print workshop at Jilamara in April 2017.
