• All about the designs:
On Walkabout (blue & wine) – Karen Taylor
This very Traditional Western Desert work clearly depicts the journey of a young man who leaves his family at the top right corner of the painting and undertakes a long walk in search of a partner. Despite visiting many other tribes and family groups he has still not been successful and makes his own camp, or settles at a new site in the top left hand corner. The white snake at each group would indicate fertility and a closeness to or favourable relationship with the earth. Since the place where our young man has settled also has the snake, we believe the young man’s search will have a happy ending.
Bush Tucker – Julie Nabangardi Sheddon
We could jokingly refer to this as an Aboriginal cookbook. We can see three people sitting at their campfire. The digging sticks and coolamons next to the seated figures confirm that they are female. They are discussing the food sources available in the area. The honey ants, small lizards, snakes and witchetty grubs are shown along with the bush fruit. The women’s footprints wander through the food probably indicating that the food may be collected.
Man’s Ceremony – Peter Marshall
This design is a derivative of a more complex painting titled “Snake Dreaming”. The story is a ceremonial one so the details are not fully revealed. It is thought to be part of the “coming of age” rites for young men.
