Phyllis Ningarmara Gerran - Stony Country 2008
Natural ochre & pigment on canvas
1000 x 800mm
WAS $3600 NOW $2200

This is stone country - when I walk across this country there are lots of rocks and little stones. We call then Gerran. In the wet season the rivers are filled with coloured stones. This painting also tells another story. It is corroboree story given to the artist by her father which describes the boundaries of the stony Miriwoong country as well as a representation of her traditional country at Woorroo Worrem east of Kununurra in the Kimberley region. In the corroboree the dancers walk to the north, the east, the south and the west delineating the stone Miriwoong country. As this story was given to the artists she passes it on to her children and grandchildren. In this painting she shared the story "with my little mummy - Kathy Ward" (Grand daughter) "She help me start this painting."
