Item Description

Bid now for this stunning Sherrin football "Pilbara Wild Flowers" painted by Indigenous artist Dawn Sandy, presented in a perspex box. On this piece, Dawn says: "This is about my country, my grandfather's country, Millstream, when we were roaming through the countryside. It reminds me of when we were going through country, a long distance from town, and saw some pretty flowers alongside the road, and when we would get into Millstream, it reminds me of the water- like an underground spring and all the flowers around it. And when you go up to our country, you see lots of Mulla Mulla plants with purple flowers and yellowish seeds on top. On the Tablelands, after rain, there's plenty of green grass. When it's cold at night, very cold, there are lots of flowers. We get those honey trees, Gurrawa, too, suck the juice from them, the yellow ones called 'jayimarra'."

Kindly donated by Woodside and with thanks to Yinjaa-Barni Art.
