An original Aboriginal artwork from Central Australia for your home.

This detailed dot painting is by Geraldine Nangala Gallagher.

Geraldine comes from Nyirripi, a remote Aboriginal community located approx. 440 km north-west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. She began painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation; an Aboriginal owned and governed Art Centre, in 2010.

This painting represents the Jukurrpa (Dreaming) of the Emu at Ngarlikurlangu.

The emu travelled to the rockhole at Ngarlikurlangu to find water. This dreamtime belongs to Jangala & Jampijinpa men and Nangala & Nampijinpa women. In the time of the Dreaming there was a fight at the site between an emu ancestor and an Australian bustard ancestor over sharing the bush raisin. There is also a dance for this Dreaming that is performed during initiation ceremonies.
