Spinifex Grass "Anjurra" by Serina Ngwarraye Holmes

Spinifex Grass “Anjurra”

The artists of Ampilatwatja made a conscious decision not to paint ‘altyerr’ dreaming stories. The artists paint their country where those stories sit.

The spinifex grass cover the ground in parts of Alywarr country.

“The colours change with the time of day and the ‘anjurra’ make sounds and move with the wind.
The birds come and eat the seeds and we use it’s resin for our woomeras “amerra” and bush medicine.”
