Explications sur cette peinture d’art Aborigène :

Mary Meribida (1938) was born at Ilyara (Punmu) and lived there throughout her childhood. She travelled around her country with her family. Until the early 1970s, she lived a traditional life and says, "We been walk 'em, no clothes, nothing. We proper bush people, no English." Mary is a part of the Yulparija people who walked out of the desert to the coastal town of Bidyadanga in search of water after severe drought had plagued their land.

Mary Says "this place Yalta. There is tali (sand dunes) and lots of Nyarlka (trees). Good country this one got plenty water." Yalta is near well 33 on the Canning Stock Route not far from the Percival Lakes in the Great Sandy Desert, W.A.
