Cotton Tea Towel - "Family and Country II"
This design is owned by Damien and Nyinkalya Marks.
This is a teaching painting, describing a dry season in Mount Liebig, in the Northern Territory. Women and children collect bush potatoes & prepare for inma (ceremony). A man, wati, sits down with his waru (spear). Controlled burnings are taking place as the spinifex is dry, and this means good fruits can grow.
