Condition Report

The painting was acquired by the vendor at Sotheby's in 1998 and appears in the catalogue then in very similar condition to its current state. The painting has many areas of pigment loss, most apparent in the upper thighs, arms, head, and shoulders of the main central figure. There is some flaking of the paint to the head and shoulders and we would recommend that the purchaser consider consolidation in this area, which could be readily undertaken by a restorer with the use of a clear matte gum.
"In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective, qualified opinion. Prospective buyers should also refer to any Important Notices regarding this sale, which are printed in the Sale Catalogue.
NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS PRINTED IN THE SALE CATALOGUE."

Provenance

Collected by the sound recordist working on Michael Edols film, Lalai Dreamtime at Mowanjum in 1972. The film, in part, involved filming of Wanjina paintings in the company of Worrorra people. It was presented to the film crew for sale by Karedada who described the painting as 'Namarali, the first one' and further described the work as a Wanjiina bringing the first man and woman - held in each hand.
