Description: A Unique Black and Grey Watiya Tjuta design that relates to men’s wooden objects. The Tjukurrpa or Dreaming of this work concerns making of spears and boomerangs an important aspect of men’s business. The straightening of spears is a theme frequently painted by her brother Turkey Tolsen. Mitjili is known for the strength of patterning in the formal arrangements of her work, as depicted in her bold Irantji Ranges and the Mikarnta Waterholes which her husband often painted in his Tjukurrpa. This country near the Kintore Ranges, west of Haast Bluff is rich in bush food, with plenty of native grass seeds for bush damper, as well as animals such as bush turkeys & kangaroos. Stands of Desert Oaks form vertical patterns against the shimmering sands. A large blue chip investment. Comes with 8 working photos.
