PA778, 2011
Ochres on canvas

This work is one of a series that Nellie painted to record and remember the role of women in traditional ceremony. The semi-circular shapes in the work represent the breasts of women painted for ceremony. The larger shapes are those breast of older women - Parnany and the smaller shapes those of young girls - Wamala. The women used white or yellow ochre as paint and each group of women used a particular design. This design was consistent throughout the group and was like a signature indicating the country you belong to and the dreaming of that country.

As a boy Lloyd walked much of the desert with his father Billy Thomas (Karntakarnta) and knows the importance of these waterholes and understands their connections well.

Acrylic on linen canvas

Jane has depicted Kinyu, her mother’s country located in the Great Sandy Desert, south west of Balgo. This country is very important: it attracts people and animals from the surrounding tali (sand hills) because it is full of mangarri (food). Small family groups have been travelling in this country for a long time. They go from one spot to another, hunting in the day and sleeping around the different rock holes (circular shapes) during the night.
