Gunyunmirringa, Gudthaykudthay’s principle totemic site, is a small ﬂat eucalyptus forest, situated about ten kilometres west of Woolen River and 14 kilometres south of Hutchinson Strait. It is Gudthaykudthay’s depiction of this site, which ﬁrst brought him to the attention of the art world in the early 1980s, and this ﬁne line rarrk (crosshatching) became the style for which he is renown.
