Summary
  • "The artists of the Injalak Arts and Crafts Association, together with the people of Gunbalanya (Oenpelli), are proud to introduce Kunwinjku art from Injalak, 1991-1992 : the John W. Kluge commission. This collection comprises forty five paintings that depict important Dreamings that are of great significance to the Kunwinjku people. Working on this commission was a unique opportunity for the artists and elders of Gunbalanya to collaborate on a comprehensive and multi-faceted project. It is the first time that we have worked together in such a way, and the results have been very satisfying."--Page 10
  • Examines the art of the Gunbalunya area of Western Arnhem Land, its overriding importance to the people, and records how 15 artists from the region created a collection of 45 paintings to record their culture and stories
