Explications sur cette peinture d’art Aborigène :

Lydia Balbal (1958) is a Mangala woman. Lydia's country is near Punmu in the Great Sandy Desert of W.A. Her people's existence was threatened by severe drought so that they had little choice but to leave their traditional country. Her family were some of the last to walk out to the coastal town of Bidyadanga (then La Grange Mission) located two hours south of Broome in the early 70s. Lydia first began painting in 2007 but has already received significant attention from collectors and the media alike. 

Pikarong is a Jila (living water) in Jawiny and Mangala border country. This is both Lydia's parents country. This is the country that Lydia was born in. It is strong woman's country forming part of the woman's law line. There is a lot of campi (bushfood) here especially king brown snake. This country is north of Winpa near well 33 on the Canning Stock Route in the Great Sandy Desert, W.A.
