Narmurdur Grim Reaper, original canvas painting by local Bininj artist John Rocky Cahill.

Dimensions: 29.5cm x 41.5cm

Narmurdur is told to bring death with the whip he carries with him. He still to this day brings fear in many local Bininj in Kakadu and west Arnhem region. The locals say, if you hear the sound of a whipping late at night, you should run in from outside, it is not safe anymore. It is possible that the name Narmurdur is related to the word “namurnungu”, which means “The one who did it”, eg. the murderer, the right one, person responsible (male).

This artwork has been purchased directly from an Aboriginal artist in Kakadu National Park or Arnhem Land. Warradjan Cultural Centre is committed to supporting artists, their families and the local community.
