Selina Kulitja

Selina Kulitja is an established artist from Kaltukatjara (Docker River). Selina paints important Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) from around the Docker River area, including Seven Sisters and Kungka Kutjara.

Mamu

This is a painting of a story my mum used to tell me when we went out hunting.

There is a Mamu (monster) that threw a spear from north all the way to a place East of Kaltukatjara called Tjunti. It cut a lizard in half, just on the other side of Lasseter’s cave. All the kids heard that story of that Mamu and they were really frightened. This canvas is a painting of those kids following around a Ngangkari (traditional healer) for protection while the Mamu is following them.
