An intricate piece sure to wow anyone who sees it. Threads of dots in red and white fade out giving this painting a soft quality and the appearance of movement. Shapes represent Iylenkyla, a little worm or caterpillar, slowly unwinding herself from slumber.

- exhibition excerpt

This painting tells the story of a small worm or caterpillar found in Loretta's country. Pronounced eey-LEN-ky-la in Loretta’s language, this creature is represented in this painting by the concentric circle designs. She, Iylenkyla, is asleep in the centre and then unwinds herself around and around. Iylenkyla is special to Loretta as the story belongs to the women of her country, Arawerr.
