Balaitj

Aboriginal art in Ramingining, Central Arnhem Land is commonly illustrated through designs and images of animals, plants and landscape. These motifs commonly reflect the artist’s ancestral inheritance and their dreamings and are referred to as totems

In this print the artist has depicted stone. It is a totem from her father’s dreaming. The stone is from Djilpin country, a gorge some 60kms south of Ramingining.
