Sally Gabori began her relatively short but spectacular art career in 2005. She had never held a paintbrush or learnt anything of contemporary art when she was given art materials at the age of 81 at her aged care home on Mornington Island. By the time of her death in 2015, she had developed her own painterly language that had taken the Australian art world by storm.

The artist's statement on the accompanying certification reads:

This is where the big saltpan on my husband's country meets the grassy plain where we collect Malbaa which is the grass we weave into string bags and nets.'
