The artist and artwork -

Julie Woods is a Pitjantjatjara woman living in Kanpi community, a small settlement in the far north west of South Australia. Her mother is Elaine Woods and her grandmother is Maringka Baker, both renown painters in their own right.

Julie's painting is telling the story of two sisters travelling through her mother’s country towards Docker River, Northern Territory. They stopped at Ilkuwaratjara and cut a wana (digging sIck). The punu (wood) was really straight. The little sister was gettng homesick, but the big sister said; “No, I am taking you to meet your family.” Along the way they were digging for kuka (meat such as goanna) and Niny (Bilby). They got kuka and they were happy to have a good feed. The ‘U’ shapes are the sisters. Next to them are their wana or digging sick. The circles represent rock or water holes where water collects after the rains.
