Wild Seed & Waterhole Yellow by Tanya Price Nangala

 

Story:

Wild Seeds and Waterhole is an excellent design of Tanya’s motherland, Utopia. Many famous indigenous artists come from Utopia. Modern Aboriginal art started its journey with Jeffrey Brandon, a school teacher who was posted in Utopia to teach artworks to aboriginal children.

Tanya depicts Australia’s wild flowers and wild seeds skilfully, which were blown by wind. People around the area collect the seeds and wash them to get rid of sand and stones. They dry and powder the seeds after washing them. Women sit around the waterhole while they chat and make a tasty bread with the powder and eat it.
