Pinkalarta

Pinkalarta is based on artwork by Alma Webou. This piece is named after her birthplace in the Great Sandy Desert. She led a traditional existence until the early 1970s when severe drought forced the Yulparija people to move to Bidyadanga on the coast. Alma said, “Pinkalakara is the place I was born and grew up; this is my mother’s country. This country has lots of mayi (bush food). I lost my mummy and sister here.” Alma cried when she painted Pinkalarta. Many of her family died as a result of the droughts in this country. Alma was a senior law woman and was well respected in her community. Tibetan Wool + Silk 240 x 240cm Can be custom sized.
