Acrylic on canvas


This painting portrays signifacant yinta (waterholes) in the artist’s country where their family lived traditionally during the pujiman (bush) days. The Martu lived very nomadically moving from water source to water source hunting and gathering bush tucker as they went. They would traverse very large distances visiting some areas in the dry and some in the wet season depending on the availability of water. As they travelled and hunted they would also burn areas of country creating a larger diversity of plant and animal life.

This painting needs to be framed or stretched. It’s also being sent direct from the artist at a remote art centre, Martumili Arts. Please note there is only one mail plane a week that takes the artwork to the city. The tracking information is then received a week later when the mail plane returns, so often the paintings are delivered before we receive the tracking information. Please expect a slightly longer wait for this very special artwork to arrive.
