What the artist says about her design:
“My country is called Mankorlod. It is near the rock country. My dreaming is komrdawh (long neck turtle), the one I painted in my design. I like to eat komrdawh, it tastes really nice. We catch them in dry and wet season near Mankorlod. This is my first ever design, and I only have one design. I painted it with brush at Bábbarra Women’s Centre, and I feel proud when people print my design.”
The vines depicted in this design grow naturally on the floodplains in Arnhem Land and are used by women to weave and create fibre sculpture. The long-necked turtle and freshwater fish depicted are popular bush foods.
