Minyma Kutjarra – Two Women (WAPCS023-12)


Acrylic on canvas, 156x156cm

“Here are the rock holes and sites where Minyma Kutjarra, the Two Women conducted ceremonies. During this time, they made mangurri head rings used by women to balance collecting bowls on their heads. They then cast them into the landscape for other women to use. The elliptical forms with a circle at the centre are the women in ceremony while the other circles are sacred sites on their songline. The headrings are the smaller discs, scattered colour across the landscape.”
