Yalanba is the name of the place where the shiny black sand that adorns this work comes from. The sand occurs in one spot only at Bayapula, near Garthalala on Caledon Bay. Dhambit's brother is named after this site. Dhambit can harvest the sand from this place because that area belongs to her clan, the Marrakulu, whose identity is depicted in this work. She also pays a tribute to the elder at Garrthalala who is from the grandmother of this place – it's märi, the Djapu clan.

Presented in collaboration with Buku-Larrnggay Mulka and Salon Art Projects.
