A great example of Djalu’s work. It is huge and has the typical sound of thunder.
It is painted with Wititj’ the ancestral rainbow serpent and Djarri the rainbow coming out of his mouth. In North East Arnhemland there are a few different type of yiḏaki. Of course it is not a coincidence that one seems to be a lot bigger than the other. Different clan’s use different instruments depending on which ceremony is going to be held. I have heard Djalu decide to go out and make a specific instrument and then go out to a bit of forest just around the corner. And walk straight to a big tree which was cut and it immediately played like the type of yiḏaki he was after!
