Title Balgo Spinifex
Artist Larry Gundora
Larry has painted his country near the Old Balgo mission. This painting represents the life cycle of the spinifex grass and the use of fire in land management practices. The painting is layered, underneath are the minerals beneath the earth, covered by the white sand, black sand or red earth in different sections of the painting. The black dots are spinifex burnt by fire, the grey dots are the ash and the green are the regrowth.
