56 LInda Chandler 'Dance of the Jiggai' Drypoint Chine Colle.jpg

‘Dance of the Jiggai’ Drypoint & chine colle The tribe Kuku - Yalanji in far north Queensland tells a sacred story reminding us to dance. The 'Jiggai' dances from the time it is a larvae in the bottom of the waterhole. It follows the moon to the surface throughout its life dancing, then just above the water it emerges as a dragon fly. It reminds us that when we dance the Earth Mother feels us on her back. She then brings rain that will bring abundance to the waterholes and rainforests.
