Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas

Signed certificate of authenticity.

In this painting Emily has depicted designs associated with the Janmarda Tjukurrpa (Onion Dreaming) site of Karrinyarra (Central Mt Wedge). Karinyarra is two hours drive North West of the remote Aboriginal community of Papunya, Northern Territory, where there is a large salt lake and sacred spring. At certain times of year the surrounds become covered with bush onion grass creating a creamy texture across the landscape. Women dig at the grass to find the bush onion that grows at the roots. The bush onions are gathered and cooked on the coals of the fire. Once they are cool enough to be held they are rubbed between the hands so that the outer shell comes away revealing the lovely sweet small onion underneath.

Artwork can be hung any orientation.
