Ginger Wikilyiri was born at Kunamata a rock hole south of Nyapari in 1930. He is senior law man with a passion for land management and worked for many years as a ranger for Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
Ginger’s marvellously expressive and vibrantly coloured works embody a wealth of traditional knowledge. He employs both figurative elements and dot patterns when composing his highly charged and expressive images.
In this Dreaming story a man is so hungry he eats a tree and his kuka (cooked food) all at once. It is a story that is performed with traditional singing and dancing by Anangu Pitjantatjara men. The artist says the dance is like a slow walk.Share
