2007
Umari
synthetic polymer paint on Belgian linen
107 x 28 cm

PROVENANCE:
Kimberley Australian Aboriginal Art Certificate of Authenticity.

OTHER NOTES:
This painting depicts designs associated with the rockhole site of Umari, situated in sandhill country, east of Mt. Webb in Western Australia. A number of women gathered at the site to perform ceremonies. The women, one of the Nangala kinship subsection and the others of the Napaltjarri kinship subsection, later travelled towards the east. One of the mythologies associated with the area concerns a relationship between a man of Tjakamarra kinship subsection and a women of the Nangala kinship subsection. This is a mother-in-law relationship which is very taboo in Aboriginal culture.
