The story behind this print:
This print is an accredited aboriginal design by the great artist Bernadine Wallace. Bernadine Wallace learnt artwork and dreaming from her mother, Kathy Wallace, and her grandmother. This design depicts the corroboree. Traditionally the corroboree is a ceremonial meeting. Her artwork beautifully depicts men, women and children attending the corroboree. They often discuss religion, friendships and other social matters. The circles in dots represent the people who are deeply involved in discussions sitting around the waterholes. The over-shape semicircles are indicating pathways to travel. Small circles in middle depict fruit trees.
