WATIYA TJUTA & IRANTJI DREAMING WITH CLOUDS & WILDFLOWERS


Watiya Tjuta (trees) relates to men’s wooden objects. The Tjukurrpa or Dreaming of this work concerns making of spears, an important aspect of men’s business. The straightening of spears is a theme frequently painted by her brother Turkey Tolsen. The roots depicted in this painting are used to make boomerangs & other implements.
Mitjili is known for the strength of patterning in the formal arrangements of her work, as in this representation of the women’s side of this Tjukurrpa, the trees that provide the wood for spear shafts & other objects. The country where the trees are found is Uwalki, Mitjili’s father’s country. Her mother, who drew images in the sand of Uwalki, taught her fathers Tjukurrpa.
This country near the Kintore Ranges, west of Haast Bluff is rich in bush food, with plenty of native grass seeds for bush damper, as well as animals such as bush turkeys & kangaroos. This painting depicts the root system of the Watiya Tjuta tree. Stands of Desert Oaks form vertical patterns against the shimmering sands. 

The middle section of Mitjili’s painting depicts her bold Irantji Ranges and the  Mikarnta Waterholes which her husband often painted in his Tjukurrpa.
The grey/black circles represent the abundant wildflowers after rain.
