Michael and Barbie Chandler championed the work of artists from Bulgul, a small indigenous community consisting of 10 to 15 simple houses spread along the coast north of the Daly River mouth. The works created there intertwine the artist's strong convictions in both their traditional Aboriginal heritage and their Christian faith. They speak of specific Aboriginal beliefs and traditions, but their message connects with the larger, urban and modern world, touching on poignant messages of humanity that resonate anywhere, in any language.

Bulgul residents including the three Morgan sisters and Maida Stewart still engage in traditional hunting and gathering activities each day including fishing, crabbing and gathering of native plants.
