Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

There are many types of waterholes that Anangu can use and they depend on their intimate knowledge of the environment to know where and when they will find water. Sometimes a soakage will have dried up and the women must use their digging sticks to find the water under the surface. They transport it back to their families by carrying it in wooden bowls which are carried on their heads.

Dots and lines are like the patterns of different desert vegetation types and concentric circles linked by lines can represent waterholes and river courses or the traveling and resting places of Creation Ancestors and Anangu.

Anangu follow the traditions of their Tjukurpa or Creation Law within which are coded life survival skills. There is inma or ceremony for all parts of the country in order to teach and celebrate; for people to learn where they fit within both the environment and social systems.
