Women’s Corroboree – by Nancy Campbell Napanangka
As the name implies, the Central Desert work depicts a gathering and celebration of Women. In the diagonal corners are two groups of female elders, probably with feasting in progress. We can identify them as women by the digging stick and coolamons. In this case the coolamons are full of food, from which we can safely assume some form of celebration is in progress. The other females in the painting, scattered through the main body of the work do not yet have coolamons to collect and carry food and not all have digging sticks close to them, or only have curved sticks. Perhaps at the end of the ceremony, these young girls will be regarded as women.
On Walkabout (blue) – 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.
