Description As a boy, John Danalis never thought to ask why an Aboriginal skull sat on the mantelpiece at home. The skull was just "Mary", and had always been there. Years later, he did ask why. He asked whose skull it was and where it belonged. Finding out the answers to these questions took him on an extraordinary journey, ending with a ceremonial handover and Mary's return to Wamba Wamba country.
