Paddy Fordham was an highly acclaimed Rembarrnga artist. You can find his paintings and sculptures in galleries and musea all over the world. Didgeridoos by this great man are extremely rare. The painting is in acrylics and the instrument is sealed on the outside with wood glue. It plays really sweet for an mago of this size. A nice, full bodied drone with clear horn note. To get an idea in what style this instrument is played traditionally you should check “Arnhemland Popular Classics”. A field recording from the 60’s with Paddy Fordham Wanyburrwanga on didgeridoo. This instrument is acquired in Alice Springs 2002.
This particular instrument was part of the ‘Power of Wood’ exhibition at the Aboriginal Art Museum Utrecht, in 2015.
