    We could jokingly refer to this painting as an Aboriginal Cook Book.  In the centre are three people sitting at their campfire.  They have digging sticks and coolamons at their side showing that they are females.  They are probably talking about the various foods available in the surrounding lands.  The honey ants, small lizards, snakes and witchety grubs are all shown, along with some bush fruit.  The footprints wandering through the painting show the women as gatherers of these foods.  The original painting is circular in form.

    Cotton Chiffon Scarf - On Walkabout
    • Made from 100% cotton chiffon
    • Designed and made in Australia  
    • Measures 180 x 30 cm (70 x 12 in)

    • Artist - Karen Taylor

    This very traditional Western Desert work shows the journey of a young man who leaves his family and undertakes a long walk in search of a partner.  Despite visiting many other tribes and family groups, he has not been successful and makes his own camp.  The white snake at each group indicates fertility and closeness to, or favourable relationships with, the earth.  Since the place where the young man settled also has a snake, we can conclude that the search by the young man will have a happy ending.

    Cotton Chiffon Scarf - Women's Corroboree
    • Made from 100% cotton chiffon

    As the name implies, the Central Desert work depicts a gathering and celebration of women.  In the diagonal corners are two groups of female elders, probably with feasting in progress.  We can identify them as women by the digging sticks and the cooolamons.  In this case, the coolamons are full of food, from which we can safely assume that some form of celebration is in progress.  The other females in the painting (scattered through the main body of the work) do not yet have coolamons to collect and carry food and not all have digging sticks close to them, or only have curved sticks.  Perhaps at the end of the ceremony, these young girls will be regarded as women.  This painting is part of Aboriginal Law and further discussion or questions are not appropriate.
