Maggie Major Nampitjinpa Budgerigar Dreaming 2007
Acrylic on Belgian linen
610 x 915mm

This painting depicts a journey of the Ancestral Budgerigar spirits who travelled from east of Yuendumu across Central Australia during the Dreamtime world creation period. They performed ceremonies and various other secret/sacred rituals in which the landscape was created and modified to what it is today. The important ceremonial sites of the Budgerigar ancestors are depicted by the four circles.
