Waru by Alison Napurrula Multa Pantjiti


This work by Alison shows the bushfire tracking across vast areas of the desert, causing destruction but also renewing the landscape. It was common for Luritja people to set fire to the spinnefix as a means of controlling the harsh desert, using it to stimulate new plant growth of seeds and fruit, and to attract large game such as the Red Kangaroo who come to eat the new grass shoots.
