Warraga (Cycad Dreaming), 2018 Sylvia Nulpinditj acrylic on canvas 84cm x 50cm (Framed)
"This story gives structure in my culture. My children need to understand why this is important. This story belongs to my clan, this story has reputation in Yolngu knowledge. This painting is about the season we are looking at. It's important because we are creating something that is so significant its embedded in our blood, it's in our backbone, it's in our DNA, carries on generation to generation, like DNA. I have inherited this, it's my mother's knowledge. My uncles see me as a future appointed person, that way (culture way)" (Sylvia Nulpinditj 2018)
