Patrick Oloddodi Tjungurrayi - senior Aboriginal lawmen


Visitors to the gallery at the Hilton continue to be surprised at the brilliance of this painting (currently on display) by Patrick Tjungurrayi.  So many marvel how the artist, a senior law man from the desert, can paint with such brilliant colours and create such a startling work.  This painting depicts designs associated with the site of Myilili near Jupiter Well, in the central desert area of Australia.  In mythological times a large group of Tingari Men (senior Aboriginal lawmen) camped near this site before traveling south-east to Ngarru where they performed sacred dances and sang the songs associated with the area.
