In general  bark paintings by Daynganggan with figures or human beings on them tend to be much more popular and valuable than those without. He has a fairly easily recognizable face on his figures and this is probably the easiest way of telling if you painting is by this artist. At least a few of his works appear to depict the morning star ceremony.

Other works depict the Honey Men Ceremony

Along with many other Arnhem Land Artists who did bark paintings, there is not a lot of information readily available about Daynganggan. If anyone knows more information about the biography of Daynganggan,  please contact me as I would like to add it to this article.
