Explications sur cette peinture d’art Aborigène :

Margaret Baragurra (1939) was born in Kalpirti located in the Great Sandy Desert of W.A. Her people, the Yulparija, walked out of their traditional country in the early 1970s when their existence was threatened by a severe drought. Margaret travelled with her family to the coastal town of Bidyadanga (then LeGrange Mission) where she now lives.

Since Margaret started painting in 2003 her work has enjoyed critical acclaim and she has been widely exhibited. She combinations the traditional imagery of the Great Sandy Desert with the vibrant colours of the saltwater landscape she now inhabits.

Lajarri is Margaret's traditional country which is south east of Bidyadanga where she now lives. As a child she travelled with her parents across this desert country. This is when the country is full of water in the wet season. In this country there is a big warla (mud flat) which makes the water go milky . At this time there is much mayi (bush tucker) and the country is very beautiful. This is an important place for Margaret.
