Valerie Lynch Napaltjarri Water Dreaming 2007
Acrylic on linen
915 x 1220mm

This painting tells one of the many water dreamings from the Papunya area. The different coloured lines represent the elements of a storm – wind, rain, thunderclouds and lightning. The four brown lines are the water flowing, flooding the usually dry creek beds. Knowledge of where to find water was handed down from generation to generation to ensure survival in the desert.
