  • About the Artists

    Our vibrant and dynamic artists are from the Utopia region; a large remote area of Central Australia which, until recently, had no government funded art centre. As a result of their pioneering efforts, they have one of the strongest and richest art histories.

    This painting depicts elements associated with the Ahakeye (Bush Plum) story, a very important story for Lindsay that belongs to his country, Ilkawerne, and also the Little Wallaby story.  

    Concentric circles represent the site of the bush plum trees. Parallel lines represent song lines or travelling lines of the Ilkawerne people associated with this story. '7' shaped symbols represent the tracks of a little wallaby and white dots represent the flower of the bush plum.
