Explications pour cette œuvre :

Estelle is a senior Spinifex artist whose country is Paltatatjara. Paltatatjara is an important place not only for the Minyma Tjuta (Seven Sisters) story but also a number of other Dreaming stories that cannot be elaborated in detail but include the Wati Kutjara (Two Serpent Men) and Kalaya (Emu) story.

Because Estelle is the senior owner of a place that has special significance for both men and women, documentation and detail of the paintings is carefully defined and public interpretation involves a level of ‘assumed’ knowledge.

The Kungkarangkalpa or Minyma Tjuta (Seven Sisters) Tjukurpa is an epic story, Here Estelle has depicted several Minyma Tjuta sites where she travelled around on foot before contact including Paltatatjara,
Minga, Tjuntjun and Tulu.

Like many Spinifex artists estelle clearly remembers her nomadic life in the desert. Estelle passed away in 2017, early this year.
