Birlmu dja Komrdaw (Barramundi and Turtle)

Jennifer Wurrkidj is a Kuninjku artist from the Kurulk clan whose country lies around the outstation of Mumeka in central Arnhem Land. This image depicts important man-me (food) from freshwater environments on Jennifer’s country.

Wayuk (waterlily) roots are called burdbarrk and are eaten fresh from the water or cooked on an open fire. The freshwater turtle (kormdaw) are a favourite cuisine – they hibernate on the floodplains during the dry season.

Various fish species including the barramundi (bilmu) as shown here are hunted with a spear or trapped inside a woven fish trap.
