Acrylic on Canvas – 40 x 40 cm (pre-stretched)
The Tiger Shark Spirit Ancestor is associated with the Rrumburriya clan. Members of this clan are the descendants and living embodiments of the Tiger Shark.
Manangoora is located twelve kilometres upstream on the eastern bank of the Wearyan River.
This Dreaming story is highly significant because it tells the story of how the Tiger Shark brings the cycad palm food to Manangoora, how he names places in the land and the sea, and how he makes law, ceremony and song.
