Artwork Story

This print is from a series of four images by Paddy Japaljarri Sims, which shows the traditional practices associated with burning off areas of spinifex country. The fires are lit around the central circular motifs that depict mulju (water soakages) so that Liwirringki (burrowing skinks) and other lizards and small mammals are flushed out of their burrows and hiding places. The image is part of a folio of four etchings made in collaboration with Basil Hall to mark the artists 90th year. The folio price $990, comprising four etchings presented in a cloth bound folio.
