Explication sur la signification de cette peinture d'art Aborigène : 

Nyunmiti Susan Burton was born in Alice Springs in 1964. She grew up in Pukatja (Ernabella) with her parents where she attended school. After completing her final school years at Yirara College in Alice Springs, Nyunmiti moved back to Ernabella and bagan her first job at the arts and crafts centre working with batik.
Nyunmiti is the Vice Chairperson of NPY Women's council and holds a very respected and senior position within her community. Although very busy working with women's council and teaching Pitjantjatjarra in Adelaide, Nyunmiti has found the time to come back to arts, where she began her career so many years ago.

In this painting Nyunmiti has depicted her country. The different colours and designs represent variations in the landscape.
Nyunmiti paints her country and is remembering stories passed down to her from her father, mother and grandfather when she paints. She is thinking of about how a long time ago they used to look after the country, there was plenty of food and families were happy travelling around from place to place. I heard these stories from my father, mother and grandfathers. I think about the future of the country for the next generation.
