Wumali Joan Nagomara Wirramanu 2005
Acrylic on canvas 1000 x 500mm $1650
Wumali has painted some of the country around Wirramanu (Balgo) in the wet season. The wet is a good
hunting time when the snakes and goanna's come out of their holes. The holes the snakes and goanna's hide in
are represented by the numerous circles. The lines that run between the circles represent the tracks left by the
animals. The dotting depicts the tali (sandhills) that dominate the surrounding country.
