Mimi spirits are thought to have taught the Kunwinjku ancestors how to paint. Mimi spirit figures are depicted in rock art in Western Arnhem Land and Kakadu.
These kind of mimi figures are used in exchange ceremonies called Mamurrng which celebrate male births. They are related to djuandjuan figures which were used as gravemarkers.
