Alhalkere Country by Josie Kunoth Petyarre | A$169.00

Designs in this painting represent a variety of important elements and Dreamtime stories belonging to Josie's country Alhalkere including atnwelarre (a pencil yam) and indukwa (a seed that emus like to eat). Arc-linear designs represent Josie's awelye (women's ceremony and body paint designs) for her country.

Malanda Kunoth experiments with bright colour and shape

Daughter of Josie and Dinny Kunoth, Malanda finds inspiration in bright colours and shapes in everyday life. These designs playfully co-exist with elements of her Dreamtime. 

Small new dot painting by Annie Hunter Petyarre

Nteny Ngkwarl by Annie Hunter Petyarre | A$189.00

Ntyeny is the Alyawarr word for the red mallee (Eucalyptus pachyphylla), and ngkwarl is the word for a sweet or honey flower. Together they refer to the sweet red mallee flower. The red mallee is a small tree growing between 4 to 6 metres tall with smooth pink bark. It has thick and leathery green leaves and produces large red nuts and yellow flowers. These flowers are sought after due to the adequate amount of honey they produce that can be sucked straight from the flower. The flowers can also be steeped in water to make a sweet drink. Circles in this painting represent the flowers and dots represent seeds. To be online, this piece travelled all the way from Annie's humpy in a remote community in northern Utopia. The community lies 350km away from Alice Springs or 50km from the nearest general store and fuel station.
