Delmore Gallery, NT
On Artalinga Station close to Sandover Highway, is a small site that features a group of plum trees called Atilpa. The site is called Albalabalangya.
Those men that have custodial responsibility for this bush tucker, gather to celebrate its fertility and hardiness with the belief that their ceremonial activities will help guarantee future crops of plums.
The main roundels are the plum trees or on another level is the central ceremonial area. The lines are the path of the ritual participants in and out of the central activities. These lines also represent cracks in the ground made by the plum tree roots.
