Aboriginal Art Theme by David Malangi (1927 – 27 June 1998) was an Indigenous Australian Yolngu artist from the Northern Territory. The Yolngu (or Yol?u) are an Indigenous Australian people inhabiting north-eastern Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia. Yolngu vfwvrally means “person” in the language spoken by the people. One of the most well known bark painters from Arnhem Land. The reproduction of one of his designs was produced on the Australian one dollar note in 1966. (originally without his knowledge – when he became aware of this, he was given financial compensation). The payment by the Reserve Bank of Australia to Malangi began issues of Aboriginal copyright in Australia. He was born at Mulanga, on the east bank of the Glyde River.

History

In early 1952, Elizabeth and Philip set out for a tour of Australia and New Zealand by way of Kenya. On 6 February 1952, they had just returned to their Kenyan home, Sagana Lodge, after a night spent at Treetops Hotel when word arrived of the death of the King. Philip broke the news to the new queen. Martin Charteris asked her to choose a regnal name; she chose to remain Elizabeth, “of course”. She was proclaimed Queen throughout her realms and the royal party hastily returned to the United Kingdom. She and the Duke of Edinburgh moved into Buckingham Palace.
