Aboriginal Art Lacquered Bangle (4cm) - Travelling Through Country by Damien & Yilpi Marks
CROSS CULTURAL PROJECT - Kar-e-Kalamdani is the local name for paper mache - a a Kashmiri cottage industry introduced to the Karmir Valley in 15th century. There are many steps in the process - creating pulp from recycled paper - molding and finishing the shapes - handpainting and varnishing
Story: This design is from an original painting of Damien’s country, Mt. Liebig, west of Papunya. Damien’s great grandfather and his family are travelling through the desert towards Kintore, collecting food. In the bottom right hand corner the sun is setting over a hillside. The family stops to camp at different places along the way. The red concentric circles are dry rockholes, and the blue and white concentric circles represent rockholes that are filled with clean water, that flows on into the creek. The red stripes coming out of the centre of the right hand side of the painting lead to one of these waterholes – these are the tracks of the family walking through the sand. In this painting you can also see spinifex bushes (the yellow star-like symbols), and dry claypans with cracks in the earth
