Gabriella Possum Nungurrayi and Michelle Possum Nungurrayi

The two artists paint the major stories of their family’s traditional Country. In this grand painting Gabriella Possum combines two stories. In the lower half, she depicts her grandmother’s ancestral country around Yuelamu on the edge of the Tanami Desert and the women’s ceremonies taking place in it. Above she captures the night sky over the desert, which became home to seven Ancestral Sisters and an old Tjakamarra tribal man who followed the sisters to the Milky Way during the Creation Time.
