Just a quick update to let you know where i have been all this time...
We have been lucky enough to have been invited into the indigenous community of Mutitaulu (next to Uluru).
For the last two months i have been learning about the traditional language, the culture and philosophies (or Tjukurpa) of the local people, the "Anangu". What an amazing learning experience. Cant wait to get back to the markets and share some of the stories.
Here is a little teaser of some of the wax lanterns that the "Anangu" have painted whilst i have been here. These following pieces are by Lulu and Billy Cooley. And there grand daughter Sissy.
Billy Cooley is a famous Anangu punu (woodwork) artist. His famous "liru" Snakes carved out of Mulga wood are displayed in our National Gallery in Canberra.
