Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas

Signed on the back

Bambatu paints womens stories and the journey paths travelled by her ancestors from Wirrulunga (east of Kiwirrkurra), from Kintore to Mount Liebig and the Papunya region. At each sacred location the women would stop to dance and sing the cycle of each sacred site. In her paintings the concentric circles represent waterholes and the parallel dotted lines represent the paths taken along the Tali (sandhills) an important feature of these landscapes. Bambatu’s line work and dotting techniques also reflect the body paint designs used by the Central and Western Desert peoples.
