Jabiru was the first animal created by Yindingie. He was very pleased with the results as Jabiru was a fine looking bird. Yindingie was so pleased that he asked Jabiru to help him give form to the other animals that were yet to be created. Jabiru was a very proud bird.
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. The detailing was finalised to bring "Jabiru" into being using brushes made from natural fibres.
