Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE
    Gifted to Mary Macha by the artist at an exhibition in 1982
    The Estate of Mary Macha AM, Perth

    According to related notes interpreted by Kim Akerman, the painting represents a men's site (a claypan filled with water) in country west of Lumbinja - southwest from the Kintore Ranges. Two men - one trying to go right. The other pulling him back all the time. The men are of the Jakamarra and Jampajinpa subsection groups. The central roundel is the claypan. The U-shapes are the men. Sandhills - tali, are indicated presumably the lines radiating out from the central area). Other sections (possibly those enclosed by the U-shapes) are marks made by the two men.
