  • 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.

  • Anaty (Desert Yam) Story by Shakira Petrick (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    Shop current artworks by Shakira Petrick

    Designs in this painting reflect the Anaty (Desert Yam) Dreaming. The Anaty is the Alyawarr word for desert yam which is similar to a sweet potato and grows in the wild across Central Australia. Growing up to the size of a human head, this yam is an important food source for the Aboriginal people of Central Australia and is still collected and eaten today.

    The linear brush work represents the yam and flower, while the dot work in this painting represents its seed.
