Around Waterhole Red by Nambooka

Dreamtime: Nambooka is a well-known designer in the quilting world. Her designs are clear, colourful and very attractive. In this design, Nambooka depicted the happenings around a waterhole on a summer day.

On a summer day, people wander around the bush to collect bush food and drink water from the waterholes. The semi-circles or ‘U’s are the people and their footsteps can be seen on the tracks. They use digging sticks to dig and gather food from the ground. Because of the hot day, animals like goannas, rainbow snakes, tortoises and frogs can also be seen going to the waterhole for water. Some long gum leaves (eucalyptus leaves) and fruit had fallen to the ground.

Wild Seed & Waterhole Yellow by Tanya Price Nangala

Dreamtime:

Wild Seeds and Waterhole is an excellent design of Tanya’s motherland, Utopia. Many famous indigenous artists come from Utopia. Modern Aboriginal art started its journey with Jeffrey Brandon, a school teacher who was posted in Utopia to teach artworks to aboriginal children.

Tanya depicts Australia’s wild flowers and wild seeds skilfully, which were blown by wind. People around the area collect the seeds and wash them to get rid of sand and stones. They dry and powder the seeds after washing them. Women sit around the waterhole while they chat and make a tasty bread with the powder and eat it.
