The Wandjina are the supreme spirit beings depicted in the ancient rock art, as well as in some recent art works, of the Worora, Ngarinyin and Wunumbul people in the Kimberley, Australia. The Wandjina are painted with white faces without a mouth, large black eyes, and a head that is surrounded by what appears to be a halo or perhaps a helmet.
