Great shot! Is that one of the paintings inspired by the Dreamings?

Jigalong says:

This group dont generally tell you whether it is a dream time story. There is alot of discussion on who has the right to paint such paintings (there are custodians). If you buy one of their painting and you ask for a story, you usually get just that:) Generally the painting are about places and what they did there.

I read Bruce Chatwin's The Songlines years ago, so I understand the concerns of the custodians.
Did you foilow this story a couple of years back?

No I didn't, but if you want to hear a real scandal listen to this about Eddie Burrup and one of the Durracks (a very famous pioneer family in the Kimberley region)

ever since I left the red centre I have been kicking myself that Ididn't buy a painting. We do have a digeridoo, and a kid taught my guys circular breathing...but those wonderful paintings..and the stories. can you bring me one when we go see the polar bears?

edit.
meant to say I love the shot. colours and the concentration going on.

I actually thought that this was taken in India when I first saw the thumbnail, until I realised whose it was. It was the colours.

This is really lovely.

beautiful. it's all about the juxtaposition with the dogs impression for me.

Thanks Nige and Geo.

I can certainly do that for you SR. There are many painters at Parnngurr at the moment as TAFE is running an Art course out there (remind me to become an Art lecturer in the next life:). There are some visually nice paintings being produced and others that are from well known elders, such as Yuwali. You might want to google the words "Yuwali cleared out" to find out about some of the stories that the painting maybe about.

Yuwali's story is fascinating. I saw the story on TV- was it Austrlaian Story? I can't imagine how frightening it must have been to have first contact with white people who are trying to tell you they have more rights over you and your land thatn you do- and getting agressive about it!

Beautiful photo.

What a story. I want to read the book.

I love stories. and a painting with a story is even better, or maybe it's a story with a painting. it should be that way all the time.

Jigalong says:

Thanks Boet.

Will try and make digital story of one of the painting next week:)
