  • 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.

    Ahakeye (Bush Plum) Dreaming by Lindsay Bird Mpetyane (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm
    In this painting, concentric circles represent the site of the Bush Plum tree, an important tree because of the berries it produces. This fruit is favoured for its sweet taste and, like many desert berries, can be reconstituted in water if dry.

      Parallel lines stemming from the concentric circles represent songlines (or travelling lines) of the Ilkawerne people associated with this story. Other symbols are sacred men's symbols related to this Dreaming.

      This story, its songs, dances and symbols have been passed down to Lindsay from his father.
