Fred Tjakamarra Ilyalitpu 2002
Acrylic on linen 1200 x 800mm $4200
Fred has painted some of his country, which is far to the south of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert. The country here is called Ilyalitpu,
and is a place of abundant water, with a series of springs and soakwaters. The circles throughout the painting show the different water
sources, and after the rainy season the creeks are often running and drain into small lakes and claypans which also fill with water.
