Story behind the artwork
This piece depicts Ngulru pods. The Aboriginal women gather the seeds, which are taken back to camp to be sorted and grounded before made into damper. In fine detail, the artist illustrates the seed pods attached onto the stems. This Dreaming belongs to the Napurrula and Nakamarra women and Jupurrurla and Jagamarra men and is honoured during ceremonies. Music sticks are used during dance cycles and songlines.
