Acrylic on Canvas – 40 x 40 cm (pre-stretched)
For a longtime our people lived with Law that set out how we marry. Our four clan groups Mambaliya, Wuyaliya, Rrumburriya, Wurdaliya had strict rules about who you could marry and who you couldn’t marry. People grew up knowing what group they could marry into to make marriage in the proper way. People respectedeach other, respected the parents and looked after them. Today, most people don’t follow this Law and marriage happens in many ways.
