This artwork was created by Helen Lanyinwanga, who was a senior textile artist with Bábbarra Designs since 2008. Helen was an accomplished artist in other mediums, notably basket weavings and prints on paper. This design depicts the stone country near Yikarrakkal, which is Helen’s mother’s traditional country. It is country filled with important sacred sites and living spirits under the river bed hiding among the rocks.
