Maŋatharra Miny’tji

As told by the artist:

‘This story is about when the first settlers came to Arnhem Land.
The blue coloured patterns are the clothes or belongings of the people from the boats.
As you can see all the boats in this print, that’s how many there were.

The main figure at the bottom was the boss (or Captain).
Before anchoring their ships, they watched the land through binoculars to see if there were any people.

I was told this story by father. I am not sure where these people first landed, there are many stories.
I was excited to see my fathers drawing so different, it made proud and happy.’
