Tilau Nangala Water Dreaming 2007
Acrylic on Belgian linen
610 x 915mm

This painting depicts the Water Dreaming story from Kalipimpinpa, north west of Sandy Blight Junction, Western Australia. The painting tells the story of an important rain making ceremony to invoke the elements. The central circle is a sacred water hole. Kalipimpinpa water dreaming is a powerful storm bringing on the lightning, thunderclouds (represented by the C shapes) and rain sending its deluge to rejuvenate the earth, filling rock holes, clay pans and creeks. It has the power to create new life and growth upon the land.
