Wandjinas and Djalala

These Wandjinas are from Bell Gorge and Imintji and the circles are Djalala – boundary or burial stones. These stones mark sacred places where the Wandjinas created dreaming sites. These sites are reminders of the laws and ceremonies that the Wandjina's create for the Ngarinyin people. These laws and ceremonies ensure that we have a good life - healthy children, shelter, ceremony and food.
