Rosalie Richards parents (Sam Richards (dec) and Winifred Richards) were travelling on foot from Warburton Ranges to Laverton and back, in the 1960's. They had arrived at Laverton and were making their way back, passing through Cosmo Newberry, when Winifred started feeling labour pains. They made it to Lake Throssell, and shortly afterward, Rosalie was born at a water rockhole nearby. This was a significant journey, and one that was undertaken on foot, before any of the major roads that cut through that vast landscape now. This is an important story to Rosalie, as it depicts her birth country.

This painting needs to be framed. It's also being sent direct from the artist at a remote art centre, Warakurna Arts, in the top end. 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.
