David Malangi (1927-1999) of the Manharrngu people was a leading figure in the development of the central Arnhem Land bark painting movement and holds a prominent place in Australian Aboriginal art. Made famous by his design used on the Australian one dollar note introduced in 1966, Malangi painted over a period of four decades. This volume traces the development of Malangi's work from the early bark paintings of the 1960s that record his patrilineally inherited land and ceremonies, to the masterful dedications to his mother's land and culture for which he was also responsible and where he spent the last thirty years of his life.

Susan Jenkins is acting curator, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, National Gallery of Australia. Other contributors to the volume include Nigel Lendon, Djon Mundine, Margie West, and members of Malangi's family.
