Description

Wallaby (Greyeng) Dreaming by Freddy Kngwarreye Jones
The Anmatyarre and Alyawarre men such as Sandy Pitjara Hunter, Freddy Kngwarreye Jones and Cowboy Louie Pwerle represent their dreaming in strong iconographic and geometric ceremonial paintings which are like identical transfers of the ground markings used during the men’s ceremonies. These large ceremonial ground paintings made from earth-pigments are sacred and have provided the model for acrylic paintings on canvas. The artists have transferred their sacred dreaming designs from the ephemeral to the tangible.
