Although not taphoglyphs ( carved trees around a burial site ) a tree at a burial site here could have a man’s mombarai carved in the wood.
“Among the Euahlayi, burial practice could differ.
Dunbar (1943) recorded a burial in the fully flexed
position: a grave was dug and the body was placed sitting
and leaning backwards with the face toward the east or
sunrise. The face was bent forward with the chin
touching the chest. The individual performing the burial
packed the body in position with sticks and earth.
Weapons and other personal property of the deceased,
and cylindro-conical stones shaped by the women, were
placed in the grave at the feet of the corpse. Bark was
then placed over the corpse and the depression filled in.
The grave was not fenced but just left as a mound
of earth which was identified by the presence of cylindroconical
stones or slightly concavo-convex, oval kopi
grave markers. In some cases a piece of bark was
removed from a tree south of the grave and marks similar
to the cicatrices on the chest of the deceased were cut
into the bark (Dunbar, 1943:146). Dunbar also recorded
that burial places could be seasonal camp sites or camp
sites isolated by floods and sites adjacent to or on sand
hills. After a burial ceremony the huts of the original
camp were burnt and a new camp was established”
