Bruce Njamme Tjangala Nakarra Nakarra 2003


Acrylic on canvas 1500 x 750mm SOLD

Bruce has painted some of his mother's country, located south of Yagga Yagga in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is known as Kunakulu and is near the Nakarra Nakarra hills. Nakarra Nakarra consists of a series of small hills, which in the Tjukurrpa (Dreamtime) were all characters in various stories. One of the main stories for this area is the Seven Sisters story, in which seven young sisters are chased by an older man, intent on marrying the youngest. The circles in this painting depict the hills, while the connecting lines show the tracks of the women. The women travelled to Nundilarra then onto Yagga Yagga.
