This is the story of the people of the Wanjinas and their unbroken living cosmology of Lalai, the Dreaming. It is also the story of Sam Woolagoodja, who was responsible for repainting the sacred Wanjinas in many of the rock shelters that dot the Kimberley landscape, and was among the first to paint the sacred stories on bark and board for Worrorra children living far from their homelands.Keeping the Wanjinas Fresh traces the journey that brought Donny to rekindle the tradition of freshening the Wanjinas.Thirty-two full colour plates feature Sam’s and Donny’s paintings and the work of other major Mowanjum artists.
