Explications sur cette œuvre :

Wakartu Cory Surprise born about 1929 and died 2011. Wakartu was born at Tapu. After the death of her parents she travelled with her brothers to Kaningarra and Wayampajirti where she grew up. As a married woman, she and her husband ran away from Christmas Creek Station, and the police brought her husband back in chains. Wakartu raised seven children while working for the police, on stations, and collecting minerals for rations.

This painting evokes an important place called Jila Jumu (Waterhole) within her traditional country. This one its way out in the Great Sandy Desert where my people used to go and visit this waterhole.
