Freda has painted her ‘ngura’ (country) Malara, south of Uluru. All land was created by, and still holds the essence of The Creation Ancestors… They created not only landforms but customs to be passed on and maintained over subsequent generations. The sites are linked through ‘Inma’ or ceremony – the singing, dancing and body painting which reveals the laws of nature and provides a blue print for life and a guiding map of country.
Malara holds important Law stories of ‘Wanampi ‘or Water Serpents, powerful creatures that inhabit and guard over waterholes. – Ref: Maruku Arts ‘Certificate of Authenticity’ provided with purchase of this work.
