PA782, 2010
Ochres on canvas

In the desert regions of Australia water and waterholes have played an important role in the evolution of indigenous peoples lifestyle, these waterholes were created in the dreamtime Jumangkarni and are all connected by subterranean tunnels. For the Wangkatjunga and Walmajarri people of the Great Sandy Desert knowledge of these waterholes was crucial to survival while living a traditional lifestyle. 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.

Title: Sugarbag Dreaming
Price: $715.00 in Australia
$650.00 for Export.
PA791, 2002
Natural ochre and pigments on canvas
60 x 80 cm
The artist's cultural totem is the Sugarbag Dreaming associated with country near Wave Hill Station in the western Northern Territory. Sugarbag is the honey and wax that is gathered from hives of native bees. Generally the hives are located in hollows in trees. When hunting people would set about looking for the bees and once they had located the hive they would cut the tree down and extract the sugarbag from the hollow. Once they had collected the sugerbag they would then place it in a billycan of water, boil it and then drink it or eat it whole without boiling it. After boiling, the wax was soft which made it pliable when used in the production of spears, axes and dress items. Traditionally the honey was crucial as a supplement to a bush tucker diet. The artist paints this story almost exclusively with a central point and radiating lines. The central point represents the hive or honey and the lines represent pathways that the native bees use to enter the hive, different colour dots are used to create patterns that give the work interesting depth.
