Shown here are our wonderful collection of Australian made cards from women artists from the Iwantja arts centre in Indulkana, North West SA.
Karu munu Tjukula Creek and Rockholes by Heather Brumby
Artists paint their connection to their land using symbolism from their own individual Dreaming path. The dots in different colour blocks represent vegetation, and places where bush foods can be gathered, as it changes from place to place and season to season. Sites may be specific rocks, waterholes, special trees, mountains and many others. Wavy lines may depict the travels of ancestral beings.
