Striking painted laquered earring depicting design by Jane Oliver - Keringke Arts. The Anangu people have special ties to totemic sites in the area and paint their connection to it. Artists use symbolism from their own individual Dreaming path, single and concentric circles, animal tracks and straight and curved lines. Wavy lines may depict travels of their ancestral beings.
Keringke Art is located at Santa Teresa 8klms SE of Alice Springs. Built in 1953, the Santa Teresa Mission has population of around 500 people. In Arrernte, Keringke means "kangaroo tracks" as related to a Dreamtime story. In the story the giant red kangaroo came to pass through the country - as he did so he became caught in a yellow vine that could go no further . With all the flies around, he began to throw dust over himself and in doing so he made a big hole that became a rock hole. After kangaroo left his footprints in the rock which can still be seen today, the rock became Keringke. The Art Centre is named after this rock hole. Keringke Arts today produces a wide variety of art products reflecting the colour, rhythm and ambience of the land that is home for the Eastern Arrernte artists.
