How Artworks Are Sent

Ochre / Kimberley artworks are shipped on canvas or linen, already stretched, ready to hang unless stated otherwise.

Acrylic artworks are shipped on canvas or linen un-stretched, rolled up in a cardboard tube unless stated otherwise.

These artworks will need to be stretched around a wooden frame before hanging

This can be done by nearly any picture framer (highly recommended) or you can DIY if you’re confident in your handiwork.

There are numerous "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to achieve this.

Artist Profile

A rare, special piece by Lily painted with ochre and a red gum background on Eucalyptus bark

Lily was born Prince Regent River area c. 1921.  From her father’s country, Woombangowangoorr, she went with her mother and family to Mitchell Plateau.  She married Jack Karadada and during the war, teenaged Lily and husband Jack, made the long walk north to Kalumburu, where they lived in a cave in the adjacent hills for many months, waiting out the Japanese bombing raids on the mission, before moving in and making a home with her huge extended and very talented family.

Lily is one of Australia’s most important contemporary aboriginal artists.  Whilst she varies her subject matter, she has never compromised on style.  Lily’s paintings are instantly recognisable.  Lily paints Wandjina – with varied totems, rain dotting, lightning (Black Wandjina), turtles, cave pools with bubbles – all different but all Lily Karadada.

Lily was awarded the Australian Centenary Medal for Contribution to Art in 2003.

A lovely lady, with a wonderful, infectious laugh – once met, never forgotten.

Artist's Description

It is said that the Wandjina spirit figure is the embodiment of the rain spirit and ancestor of the Wunambal, Ngarinyin and Worrora peoples of the north west Kimberley region of Western Australia, where ancient artisans reproduced the images on the walls of the caves and rock formations of the plateau areas along the coast and hinterland.

They were always pictured in ochres and clays, from a frontal aspect, with no mouths, and large black eyes and a slit or beak-like nose. The icons are usually depicted in a veil of dots representing raindrops, and the blood and water mix of man and other earthly creatures.

Dreamtime mythology has it that the Wandjina emerged from the rain clouds and will return in that manner, while other versions suggest that Dumbi, the Owl, is the model.
