Linda Gilbert lives and paints at Peppimentarti, an Aboriginal community in the Daly River region of the Northern Territory. Peppimenarti, or ‘Peppi’ as it is known, is situated on Tom Turner Creek approximately 320 km south west of Darwin.

 

This painting depicts the traditional syaw or fish-net that is woven each year by the women of Peppimentarti from sand-palm, or merrepen, to catch barramundi and small crayfish.
