My Country - Robina Jones by Robina Pitjara Jones

My Country – Robina Jones

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

Robina has painted her country, this side of “Kelau” where you can find a big “soakage”.
Soakage is a swamp-like area where you can dig and find water easily. All water sources are sacred to the desert people and the knowledge of where to find them is passed down through the generations.
