In his artworks, Eddie depicts the Mimi Spirits (Ancestral creation beings). They are sometimes depicted dancing across the night sky. Mimi Spirits can be found on rock formations in the Top End of Australia. Mimi Spirits are depicted as tall, thin spirits. They are harmless but can be quite mischievous. It is believed Mimi spirits in the Dreamtime taught Aboriginal people skills in hunting, cooking and painting. Eddie depicts the different elements of his country, such as ceremonial sites and the different wildlife. The Seven Mimi Sisters were beings which came down to the land from the sky, creating the land as we see it today. Upon completion of this creation, they taught the people of this land how to live and survive here, using the elements they made, before returning to the sky as the Seven Sisters Constellation.
