Ganawa Djibauga

Ganawa Djibauga “today you go through lore”. This painting represents the start of “Becoming a Man” and being selected for initiation from elders. The old people would sit and wait and watch you to see if you were ready for “Lore” to become a “Man”. The diamonds are the warriors that have been selected to start “Men’s Business”. This usually happens at the age of roughly 12-14 years of age, beginning of ceremony. The 8 diamonds are the men, and the 3 diamonds in the centre are the elders that are selecting the young men for Men’s Business.
