This bright mural was painted by Darwin born artist Jason Lee, a Larrakia, Wardaman and Karajarri man, and it depicts the seven main seasons of the indigenous calendar. It was painted in 2018 for the Darwin Street Art Festival, at the entrance to a car park in West Lane, Darwin.
The seven seasons make far more sense in Australia than the western four seasons, by taking notice of what happens seasonally with our native plants, animals and weather.
The seven seasons are: • Balnba (rainy season) - November to December - long bums, black plum and bush potatoes. • Dalay (monsoon season) - January to March - crocodile laying eggs and big red apple fruiting. • Mayilema - March to April - dragonflies and bush cherry. • Damibila (Barramundi and bush fruit time) - April to June - black cockatoo and bush peanut. • Dinidjanggama (heavy dew time) - June to August - dugong and water Lillie’s. • Gurrulwa (big wind time) - July to September - stingray and yellow kapok. • Dalirrgang (build-up) - September to October - flying fox, cocky apple and cycad nuts.
