Paddy’s unique depiction of the Mimi Spirit was the centre piece for most of his paintings. He often painted a dancing Mimi Man, which he says is a good Mimi. He looks over the land as a protector, and only comes out at nights. The Mimi is not visible during the day. Paddys works are part of many well known collections and can be seen in the Darwin and Canberra museums.
This painting is about bush beef – Paddy used to call all the bush meat bush beef. They did not have a beef (cattle) until white man came.Share
