Cf. The story of a related work dictated by Jananggoo and recorded by Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency states: ‘This is the jaalinyi (moon), not the full moon. It is at sunrise when the sun is coming up. The moon is thin, it is dying (waning). It is not the new moon. The new moon grows and gets full. This is the moon while it is dying’. Jaalinyi, 1992, Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency cat.no. WP244/92.
