Description 

From Kakadu outstation, Mamukala, Irene Henry and Harold Goodman's collaborative Cockatoo's are a popular attraction at Marrawuddi. Goodman carves the designs, and Henry paints them in a style that speaks to her family connections on the Tiwi Islands. 

“My cousin brother used to make birds, Roy’s dad used to make the Jabiru bird. Then Harold got the idea of doing cockatoo. The black cockatoo plays an important role in Tiwi ceremony…” - Irene Henry
