|Artist statement|| |
Purnara - this marking is like a number, a brand. It is used by the Aboriginal people over a big area. It shows that anything with this mark comes from the bush-desert south of the Kimberlys. When people see this purnara carving, they know what number that country has. 'Ah, that come from my country.' Many tribes use the same numbers, same meaning, cut different way. Carving on nulla nulla (spear), woomera (shield), coolamon (water holder), marrilaly (shovel for cooking), wangkuli (pan for wheat), tarta (cup) .
