Description: A striking Women's Kunga Ceremony design depicting sacred ceremonial grounds and rock hole sites surrounded by Tali (Sand hills) in the area of the artist’s birthplace where the young women are taught by the elders and law women their culture. Also depicted are the dancing tracks used by women as they travel from one ceremonial ground to another celebrating their land and culture. Senior clan elders from each skin group gather in the two sacred ceremonial sites to teach and initiate their young women who merge together from the outer sites. The Elders teach their Dreamtime songs & culture which goes back 40,000 years. The painting also depicts traveling paths to and from Ceremonial grounds and Mungari - bush tucker sites where women collect and prepare bush tucker. The dots represent the contours of the land. A beautifully executed investment work at a great sale price.
