ABOUT THE ARTWORK:
Ngarduk Kunred, 2017 © Helen Lanyinwanga (deceased) / Licensed by Copyright Agency

“My design is of the kunbad (rocks) at the kunwardde (stone country). I call this country mother. These rocks live at the bottom of the kunronj (fresh water)- some are old, some are cracked and some are soft. The kunronj runs over the stones, and when we drink this water it tastes sweet and fresh.”
This design depicts the stone country near Yikarrakkal, which is Helen’s mother’s traditional country. It is country filled with important sacred sites and living spirits under the river bed hiding among the rocks.
