Explications sur cette peinture d’art Aborigène :

Lydia Balbal (1958) is a Mangala woman. Lydia's country is near Punmu in the Great Sandy Desert of W.A. Her people's existence was threatened by severe drought so that they had little choice but to leave their traditional country. Her family were some of the last to walk out to the coastal town of Bidyadanga (then La Grange Mission) located two hours south of Broome in the early 70s. Lydia first began painting in 2007 but has already received significant attention from collectors and the media alike. 

Winpa is jila (living water) located near the Percival Lakes in the Great Sandy Desert in WA. It is an important gathering of the Yulparija and neighbouring groups. they would gather for rain making ceremonial ceremonies.
