Goongingore was created by Yindingie and was not named until the end of the day. As he was so polite and waiting patiently for Yindingie to name him, this owl was giving all the Intelligence that was left in Yindingie's bag. That is how he became the wisest bird in the Homeland.
This painting is part of the Creation Stories Collection which depicts traditional Butchulla stories. The original was painted on stretched canvas onto which an ochre acrylic background was applied. Then with brushes made from natural fibres, the detailing was finalised to bring "Goongingore" into being.
