Medium : Acrylic on canvas
N° : 4555

Originally from Yuendumu in the Great Central Desert, Valentine White Nakamarra evokes in this work the Dreaming of the Lukarrara (a herb whose seeds are edible), which belongs to the Nakamarra and Napurrurla women, two female clans of the Warlpiri group.

Like everything else in the Aborigines' environment, it has a legend associated with it, known only to the initiated. The multi-colored lines that make up the canvas represent the seeds that fall to the ground.
