  • About

    Given the use of ceremonial references in some of the forms included in this painting, ongoing community consultation will be required to determine the display requirements, and potentially restrictions, for the work. When the work was displayed at the National Gallery of Victoria in 2011 it was in a separate room to ensure women, particularly those from western and central desert communities, did not inadvertently see the work.
