    Dreamtime Sisters by Colleen Wallace Nungari (SOLD)

    90cm x 90cm

    The Dreamtime Sisters are good spirits dancing and looking after Colleen's country. Colleen says these sisters were once living people; her ancestors. There is a sacred site on Colleen's country where Dreamtime Sisters are carved on the rock walls, and on these walls this is what they look like. At this sitewomen perform ceremony for Arlatyeye (a pencil yam) and its seed. In the centre of this painting, there is a long decorated oval which represents the sacred site. Dreamtime Sisters are connected spiritually to the site as represented by the thick, curved white lines. It is night time when they have their ceremony and the cooler coloured dots represent this. The rest of the painting is filled with warm, bright coloured dots which represent the day time when women collect the yam. The circle designs throughout are symbolic of waterholes scattered over the country or where the women dig for arlatyeye.
