Artist - Nancy Campbell Napanangka

As the name implies, the Central Desert work depicts a gathering and celebration of women.  In the diagonal corners are two groups of female elders, probably with feasting in progress.  We can identify them as women by the digging sticks and the cooolamons.  In this case, the coolamons are full of food, from which we can safely assume that some form of celebration is in progress.  The other females in the painting (scattered through the main body of the work) do not yet have coolamons to collect and carry food and not all have digging sticks close to them, or only have curved sticks.  Perhaps at the end of the ceremony, these young girls will be regarded as women.  This painting is part of Aboriginal Law and further discussion or questions are not appropriate.
