Minyma Kutjarra – Two Women (WAPCS021-13)


Acrylic on canvas, 92x92cm

Minyma Kutjarra are travelling across the country just to the south of Warburton Ranges, making Mangurri or headrings and leaving them in the landscape for people to use. They made two especially large head rings, now seen as two low but prominent hills. The concentric circles are the head rings made by the sisters as they travelled, and the surrounding linear patterns are sandhills and gravel ridge country in the desert.
