This new print of mine called Uburrnithun (Dugong surfacing) This print was inspired when we're out hunting we'd look for the Dugongs to come up for air.

When the Dugongs come up they exhale and you can see spray of water on the water surface when its smooth and calm waters.

This spray is what we look for when out hunting and we'll know Dugongs are in that area. Uburrnithun is in my Kala Lagau Ya language meaning Dugong surfacing for air before it dives down again.
