Mimi are reclusive, shy spirits that inhabit the rocky escarpment country around Gunbulunya in Western Arnhem land. They hide in the rocks during the daylight hours and only emerge at night, travelling under the cloak of darkness.

The only people to see them are Marrkidjbu, the medicine men of the Kunwinjku people.

In this painting the artist has painted a male and a female Mimi and various plants and animals.
