Yirawala was a master of creating dazzling patterns of rarrk that embodied the presence of ancestral forces within a painting, as in the animated depiction of Lumahlumah in full ceremonial regalia.  Through his authority to introduce innovations in bark painting, such as his variations on rarrk patterns to enhance the brilliance of a painting, Yirawala was a major influence on successive generations of bark painters from western Arnhem Land.  The white ground of the bark is also a devi (showing 500 of 1075 characters).
