Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas

Signed with a certificate of authenticity

Helicopter has depicted his traditional country, located far to the south west of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is near Nynmi and is known as Wangkartu, named for the tjurrnu (soakwater) which was the life source for Helicopter when he was a young man travelling and hunting across the land with his family.

The many parallel lines in the painting represent the tali (sand dunes) which dominate the landscape of the area. The row of five circles indicate the Minyurr waterhold and the row of six waterholes represent Nyarrkla a living water source, meaning in the wet or dry, if you dig a little you will always find water. The kutjarra (two) circles in the centre are rockholes found in Helicopter's country.
