Explications pour cette peinture d'art Aborigène :

Ngupulya Pumani paints Antara, an extremely important site for Ngupulya and her family. Antara is Ngupulya’s mother’s country. This place, and its significant Maku (witchetty grub) Tjukurpa were a constant in the paintings of the late Milatjari Pumani. Today Ngupulya and her younger sister Betty Kuntiwa Pumani are proud custodians of this country; they map its significance and hold its stories strong in their paintings of Antara.

"Antara is my mother's country. She taught me the stories, and showed me the places, like one special rockhole where women would have inma (ceremony). Now I remember her when I paint Antara." Mimili is home to 300 Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara people who have been living in the area for millennia in harmony with nature and acting as custodians of the land and the Tjukurpa (creation stories). Mimili was formerly known as Everard Park, which was a cattle station that was returned to Aboriginal ownership through the 1981 AP Lands Act. Mimili Community was incorporated as an Aboriginal Community in 1975.
