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 on a stretcher board 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.

Artwork Description

This is Pilta . Pilta is a very important story about the two wanampi (ancestoral serpents) and their two wives. The two women travelled everywhere digging for food. Each day they would dig for kuka upupilypa (tadpoles) or collect wild berries like kampurarpa. They always took food back to their two husbands. One day they got tired of working so hard and thought to themselves “we might not take all this food to the men, maybe we’ll eat some first”. The men got angry with the women for taking so long to bring the food back and decided to trick the women by turning into water snakes.
